A strong voice for working families


FederationLogoCOLOR-newsiteThe Saint Paul Regional Labor Federation is a key part of the nation’s largest and strongest labor federation – the AFL-CIO, which unites more than 12 million working women and men of every race and ethnicity, from every walk of life.

More than 100 affiliate unions make up the Regional Labor Federation, representing more than 50,000 union members who live or work in Ramsey, Washington, Dakota and Chisago counties. Our elected officers and professional staff members support political, organizing and issue-oriented campaigns by mobilizing – and growing – a network of committed union volunteers.

To bring economic justice to the workplace and social justice to our state and the nation, the Saint Paul Regional Labor Federation works to:

• Build a broad labor movement in the East Metro area by helping workers join and form unions.

• Support Minnesota workers as they bargain with employers to improve their living conditions and workplaces, as well as their communities.

• Strengthen the voice of Minnesota’s working families at all levels of government and in a changing global economy.
