Workers union - federation

Alberta Federation of Labour (AFL)

Description

The AFL is currently made up of 29 unions from both the public and private sectors. Taken together, these unions represent nearly 145,000 workers from across the province. Click here for a list of AFL affiliates.

The AFL's priorities are set at membership conventions held every two years in either Edmonton or Calgary. Every union affiliated to the Federation is entitled to send delegates to conventions in numbers proportionate to their membership.

Together with community groups like Friends of Medicare, the AFL helped establish the influential coalition that has fought against under-funding and creeping privatization in Alberta's health care system.
