    No Solidarity - CTV.ca | W-FIVE
    Local 183 of the Labourers International Union - LIUNA for short - is the biggest union local in North America. Located in Southwestern Ontario, mostly in Toronto, it boasts 35,000 members, who work in the construction business.

    At Local 183 they like to boast that if they stopped working, Toronto would immediately fall into recession. But these days, Local 183's battles aren't with the boss, they're internal, as the local is mired in a nasty fight, pitting member against member and local against the parent International.
