Meet the Sacramento Central Labor Council, AFL-CIO
Since 1889, through political action, worker organizing and community engagement, the Sacramento Central Labor Council, AFL-CIO has built the power of working families and their organizations to guarantee their rights as workers to form and join unions.
This Central Labor Council is committed to the struggle upon which our nation was founded - the constitutional right of freedom of association and the expression of opinion.
Unions mean good jobs, good wages, good benefits, secure pensions and the equal opportunity for success. Unionized leaders of working class families keep their communities engaged in issues important to working families.
The Sacramento Central Labor Council, AFL-CIO advocates every day to improve the lives of people who work. We help people who want to join together in unions so they can bargain collectively with their employers for better working conditions and the best and safest way to get a good job done. We work to ensure that all people who work are treated fairly, with decent paychecks and health and retirement benefits, safe jobs, respect and equal opportunities. We work tirelessly to help working people acquire valuable skills and achieve job-readiness, and we provide an independent voice in politics and legislation for working women and men and make their voices heard in corporate boardrooms.
We Are Working People, Standing Together
Decent raises, predictable schedules and family-friendly policies don’t just happen without working people coming together and advocating for better workplaces.
When people negotiate together, they gain better wages and benefits.
Working people in unions make improvements at the workplace, and they fight to improve the rights of all people. Union members helped create workplace health and safety standards, the Americans with Disabilities Act, Family Medical Leave Act, increases to minimum wage, workers’ compensation and lots of the other laws you rely on.

The Power of Ethical Spending
The Sacramento Central Labor Council believes that by making the choice to spend our money on products and services that are made in our country by workers who are treated fairly, and paid living wages, we are helping to protect the middle class, strengthen our national economy and build a stronger America. We are here to make your consumer buying choices easy and fun. We call that ethical consumerism, and we hope you will join us in making the everyday decisions count.
Meet Our Unions and Allies
Diverse coalitions of local unions make up the AFL-CIO's state federations and local labor councils. We are community organizations that are the heart of the labor movement. We champion better policies for working families in state and local governments.
The Sacramento Central Labor Council, AFL-CIO is a democratically governed council of 90 unions, each with its own distinct membership and unique voice. Our members have come together to build and support the rights of working people. In pursuit of these goals, we also fight to vanquish social and economic injustice.
