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.

The AFL-CIO, a union that has had its share of issues with elements of the Affordable Health Care Act, is now poised to become one of its biggest defenders on Capitol Hill. In a letter to be sent Monday to House and Senate lawmakers, labor leader Richard Trumka blasted the “reckless” Republican-led effort to repeal Obamacare “with breathtaking speed” — and without providing a replacement program.

Take Action

Stand with striking workers at Momentive Performance Materials in New York and tell their leadership to put these workers before profit margins and offer a fair contract so they can get back to work.

Tom Price, the nominee for secretary of health and human services, has supported plans to replace Medicare with an underfunded voucher system and leave seniors overwhelmed by high costs on the private insurance market.

Recent News

I wanted to be sure you are aware of Erie FREE Taxes, which helps eligible low and moderate income wage-earners to claim the Earned Income Tax Credit by providing free tax preparation services through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program. 

When the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) and Staples birthed a retail partnership in 2013, USPS said “it’s time to celebrate.” But now, that program has been sentenced to death and it is postal labor leaders who are rejoicing. They cheer the demise of a program that had been the target of a vigorous campaign by postal unions that don’t want the post office privatized.

The head of the AFL-CIO and House Democrats are hoping President-elect Donald Trump and his recent pick for U.S. trade representative will put workers’ rights at the top of the list of demands during trade negotiations. A group of lawmakers and AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka made the case during a news conference at the Capitol Jan. 3, a day after Trump said he will nominate Robert Lighthizer, a Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher and Flom LLP lawyer, as U.S. trade representative.

President-elect Donald Trump has nominated Andy Puzder, the CEO of the Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. burger chains, to be America’s next labor secretary. In doing so, Trump may be drawing more attention to the plight of low-wage workers than he could have imagined. Puzder’s company violated minimum wage law by paying Hardee’s workers with pre-paid Visa debit cards.
