The SFLC is the local body of the AFL-CIO and was chartered in 1893 to be the coordinating regional body for labor cooperation and unity. We are a membership organization serving as a coalition of the Labor Community in San Francisco. Over 150 unions are affiliated with the SFLC, representing more than 100,000 union members and their families.
The SFLC believes there is strength in unity. In this vein, the SFLC is proud to work with unions affiliated with both the AFL-CIO and Change To Win. Change To Win unions with workers in San Francisco participate in the Solidarity Charter program through the AFL-CIO and are full affiliates of the SFLC.
The mission of the SFLC is to improve the lives of workers, their families, and our community %u2013 to bring economic justice to the workplace and social justice to the nation.
We accomplish this mission by working to build worker power through work on political education and action, economic development in San Francisco, union organizing, a community service and training program, and educational programs for the community.
