Northwestern Pennsylvania Area Labor Federation, AFL-CIO

 

The Northwest Pennsylvania Area Labor Federation is an AFL-CIO affilated organization that represents  10 Central Labor Councils with a combined memberships of  39,639 members of 212 unions in Pennsylvania.

The mission of the Northwest Pennsylvania Area Labor Federation is to improve the lives of working families—to bring economic justice to the workplace and social justice to our state and the nation. To accomplish this mission, we work to:

·        Build a broad movement of Pennsylvania workers by helping workers join and form unions.

·        Support Pennsylvania workers as they bargain with employers to improve their living conditions and workplaces, as well as their communities, state and nation.

·        Strengthen the voice of Pennsylvania working families at all levels of government and in a changing global economy.

The Northwest Pennsylvania Area Labor Federation is a key part of the nation's largest and strongest labor federation—the AFL-CIO, which unites 10.5 million working women and men of every race and ethnicity and from every walk of life.
