About Us

The Northwest Pennsylvania Area Labor Federation is an AFL-CIO affiliated organization that has within its jurisdiction 10 Central Labor Councils with a combined membership of 39,639 members of 212 unions in Pennsylvania. We are the heart of the labor movement.

We have democratically elected bodies dedicated to represent the interests of working people at the state and local levels. We mobilize our members and community partners to advocate for social and economic justice and we strive daily to vanquish oppression and make our communities better for all people—regardless of race, color, gender, religion, age, sexual orientation, or ethnic or national origin.  

The Northwestern 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.
