As the voice of working people
in local communities across the United States,
the AFL-CIO Central Labor Councils are the
heart of the American labor
By uniting the labor movement and mobilizing the local community, the Councils play a critical role on local, state and national issues as we work to accomplish our mission “To organize in the community to promote social justice for all working people.”
The Metropolitan Washington Council is proud to be at the forefront of this movement, working with nearly 200 affiliated union locals and our community, religious, student and political allies to improve the lives of workers and their families throughout the greater metro Washington area.
Each year, the Council coordinates strategy and organizes demonstrations to support affiliated locals organizing workers or negotiating union contracts; provides emergency services and legal counseling for workers and supports activities on behalf of political candidates who support workers’ issues.
