The North Carolina AFL-CIO Central Labor Council (WNC CLC) is a branch of the federation of labor, representing members of many labor unions throughout Western North Carolina.
The mission of the WNC CLC is to improve the lives of working families—to bring economic justice to the workplace and social justice to our state and the nation.
To accomplish this mission, we work to:
- Build a broad movement of Western North Carolina workers by helping workers join and form unions.
- Support North Carolina 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 North Carolina working families at all levels of government and in a changing global economy.
- The WNC CLC is a key part of the nation’s largest and strongest labor federation—the AFL-CIO, which unites 10.5 million working women and men of every race and ethnicity and from every walk of life.
