Description:
The Labour Coalition was an electoral coalition in Northern Ireland of left wing and labour groups, formed to stand in the 1996 Northern Ireland Forum elections. The coalition had the support of the Labour Party of Northern Ireland, Irish Militant Labour controlled Labour and Trade Union Group and the Newtownabbey Labour Party, in addition to several individuals associated with the British and Irish Communist Organisation among others.

The coalition gained only 6,425 votes (0.85% of the total). As the tenth most successful grouping in the election, it was entitled to two top-up seats on the Forum, for which it nominated Malachi Curran and Hugh Casey, former Social Democratic and Labour Party councillors. Other people on its list included Mark Langhammer and Peter Hadden.

The group was marked by frequent infighting and turmoil and disintegrated shortly after the election. Curran ran under the Labour Party of Northern Ireland banner but failed to retain his seats.
