The Progressive Labour Party was a political party in Saint Lucia created by a split of the Saint Lucia Labour Party in 1981. It first contested national elections in 1982, when it finished second behind the United Workers' Party with 27.1% of the vote, but only won a single seat, won by Jon Odlum.[1] In the 6 April 1987 elections its vote share fell to 9.3% and they lost their single seat. The party received 6.0% of the vote in the elections held later in the month and remained seatless.[2] They did not contest any further elections.[3]
