Mission of the Minnesota AFL-CIO

The Minnesota AFL-CIO is a key part of the nation’s largest and strongest labor federation – the AFL-CIO.  The AFL-CIO which unites 10.5 million working people of every race and ethnicity and from every walk of life.

The mission of the Minnesota AFL-CIO is to improve the lives of working families – to bring economic justice to the workplace and social justice to our state and nation.  To accomplish this mission, we work to:

  • Build a broad movement of Minnesota workers by helping workers join together in 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.
