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.

SEIU Healthcare PA is doing a fundraiser to benefit their frontline workers. They work in nursing homes and with clients/patients directly in their homes.

The path to the presidency runs through the labor movement.

Take Action

Working people are desperate for our leaders to put partisanship aside and do what is right for our health, our economy and our country. Tell your Senator to support the HEROES Act (H.R. 6800) and provide the relief working families need.

The labor movement is working nonstop to ensure workers devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic receive the protections and support needed during this challenging time. Get involved and make sure the needs of working people are heard.
