The Labour Party is a political organisation in the Grand Republic of Cycoldia founded and currently led by Lewis Ross. It was created following Ross' departure from the Monarchist Party. It serves as a part of the extra-parliamentary opposition following the December 2023 special election, which resulted in Ross' loss of their seat.

The Labour Party began with an official stance in favour of republicanism, with Ross stating "Cycoldia should become a republic as a way to ensure the survival of progressivism". In the Februrary 2024 polling by Olympia Polling, an Empreton Holdings subsidiary, it placed Republicanism's support at 7%, a 14% decrease from the previous polling in December. Following this and early election results in the February 2024 Cycoldian special election showing a downturn in support for Labour, Lewis Ross announced that republicanism would no longer be a party policy under Labour.

The Labour Party also has socialism and progressivism as official party policies. The Labour Party has claimed to have discussed a potential coalition with the Tulip Party. Ross stating that they have thought about joining the Tulip Party in the past, stating they are "not entirely sure" about the Tulip Party's acceptance of Liberals.
