Southwest Alabama Labor Council, AFL-CIO

 

The Alabama AFL-CIO will hold our endorsement convention on August 2-3, 2018 at the Embassy Suites, in Montgomery, Alabama.

Are you planning to attend the 2018 Alabama State Building & Construction Building Trades Conference? Or do you live nearby and want to spend a great morning in Gulf Shores.

Take Action

We can choose to sit on the sidelines or we can join together and fight for a future that works for us: a fair economy with good-paying jobs, racial justice and full equality for all, an end to climate change and a reformed criminal justice system.

We choose to fight. We choose to vote. Join us.
