Monterey Bay Central Labor Council (MBCLC)

The Monterey Bay Central Labor Council (MBCLC) is the local body of the American Federation of Labor-Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO). We are a membership organization serving as a coalition of the Labor Community in Monterey and Santa Cruz Counties. Over 75 unions are affiliated with the MBCLC, representing more than 36,000 union members and their families. The MBCLC believes there is strength in unity. In this vein, the MBCLC is proud to work with unions affiliated with both the AFL-CIO and Change To Win.

The mission of the MBCLC is to improve the lives of workers, their families, and our community – to bring economic justice to the workplace and social justice to the nation. We accomplish this mission by working to build worker power through work on political education and action, economic development in our area, union organizing, a community service and training program, and educational programs for the community.
