North East Area Labor Council Mission Statement
The North East Area Labor Council is a coalition representing over 40,000 workers. Its' affiliates include the Iron Range Labor Assembly, the Duluth Central Labor Body, the Carlton County Central Labor Body, and Minnesota AFL-CIO affiliates in Northeastern Minnesota. Our goal is to constantly and consistently enhance the mobilization efforts of the labor movement in Northeastern Minnesota to better the lives of working people.
To accomplish this mission, we work to:
- Build a broad movement of Minnesota workers 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, state and nation
- Strengthen the voice of Minnesota working families at all levels of government and in a changing global economy
The North East Area 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 people of every race and ethnicity and from every walk of life.
We are utilizing the latest technology to help local affiliates with fundraising, community outreach, research, and member-to-member communication on issues ranging from workplace disputes to political mobilization.
The North East Area Labor Council’s e-Activist Network is one way you can do that. As a network subscriber you receive occasional action alerts when your voice is needed. Send an email requesting subscription to [email protected] or register with this site to be automatically added to our list.
