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.

The NWPA Area Labor Federation is proud of its tradition of holding a Labor Day Parade in Erie, every year since 2015. We were determined to continue that tradition in spite of this pandemic.

His years of wear and tear and stress on his body from decades of running, hours tolling in his garden, and a tremendous amount of time as an activist in the labor movement first at his local and then in the broader labor movement, took a toll on his body but not his passion, spirit or determination to continue his work until a fitting leader could be cultivated and gain the experience needed to take his place.
