The Lane County Labor Council is a regional federation of unions chartered by the national AFL-CIO to promote the principles of organized labor in Lane County.
The mission of the Lane County Labor Council is to improve the lives of working families—to bring economic justice to the workplace and social justice to our Oregon and the nation. To accomplish this mission, we work to:
- Build a broad economic and social movement in our community by helping workers join and form unions.
- Support workers as they bargain with employers to improve their living conditions and workplaces, as well as our community, Oregon and nation.
- Strengthen the voice of Oregon working families at all levels of government and in a changing global economy.
We have 11,000 members and 42 local unions affiliated with our Council. These unions shape our priorities and program, carry out solidarity actions, work in the campaigns of endorsed candiates, and otherwise participate in our democratically-run organization. Through their work, they influence elections, prevail on working family issues and make a difference in their communities.
The Lane County Labor Council, AFL-CIO 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.
