The Western New York Area Labor Federation, AFL-CIO includes 5 Central Labor Councils (CLCs): Buffalo/Erie County; Cattaraugus/Allegany Dunkirk; Jamestown; Niagara/Orleans. Our mission is to improve the lives of and increase the power for working families, bring fairness and dignity to the workplace and secure social equity.
We are working to build a strong, diverse, free and democratic labor movement in order to give a political voice to workers in our area.
We fight for a public policy agenda at all levels of government which benefits all working families, both union and non-union.
We are active in our community and strive to create a broad progressive coalition for social and economic justice.
