About Us

The North Shore AFL-CIO Federation of Labor (Cleveland) is the organized voice for 85,000 working people in Cuyahoga, Lake and Geauga counties. Over 146 Local unions are affiliated with our labor federation. We represent workers from bus drivers (and mechanics) to steelworkers, from public sector workers to grocery workers, from rocket scientists at NASA to newspaper reporters to world-renowned orchestra musicians.

We are one of nearly 500 state and local labor councils of the AFL-CIO and are the heart of the labor movement. We are a democratically elected body dedicated to represent the interests of working people at the local level. We mobilize our members and community partners to advocate for social and economic justice and we strive daily to vanquish oppression and make our communities better for all people.
