Manchester Labour represents the Manchester City Council borough. We are the largest Labour council group in the country, with 93 out of 96 members of the council.
Since May 1973, after the formation of the metropolitan borough of Manchester City Council, Labour have been leading innovation and progress across the city. We’re proud to have seen the city grow under our watch.
The Leader of the Manchester City Labour Group is Sir Richard Leese, who has been in post since 1996.
Manchester City Council is a part of the Greater Manchester Combined Authority, working alongside other councils such as Trafford, Stockport, Tameside and Bolton. We work closely with Mayor Andy Burnham, who steers the GMCA.
We’re dedicated to improving the lives of all Mancunians and creating a fairer and better city for all, while holding the current Conservative national government to account.
