unionyes_brushLogoThe San Diego and Imperial Counties Labor Council is the local central body affiliate of the AFL-CIO, founded in 1891.  The Labor Council offers an avenue for local unions to come together as a unified group. Together, we represent approximately 125 affiliated labor groups within San Diego and Imperial Counties with a membership of more than 250,000 local working families.

We are not a union, but a union of unions.

We cover every sector of the workplace, including members in the building and construction trades, hotel workers, longshoremen, nurses, fire fighters, teachers, electricians, postal workers and hundreds of others in San Diego and Imperial Counties.
