The California Labor Federation is the largest state Labor Federation in the United States. The Federation is an umbrella organization comprised of more than 1,200 unions, representing 2.1 million union members: in manufacturing, retail, construction, hospitality, the public sector, healthcare, entertainment and other industries across California.
The mission of the Federation is to be the strongest voice for economic justice in the state through organizing, legislative action, political power, community alliances, and collective bargaining. We seek to maximize the capacity of labor and community organizations to advance policies to support quality job creation, ensure community health, promote shared prosperity, and increase justice for working people, including immigrant workers. We believe that economic justice is achieved through working people standing together with a voice at work.
