Who We Are

The Alberta Federation of Labour (AFL) is the leading voice for working Albertans, representing 26 affiliated trade unions and over 170,000 unionized workers across Alberta.

In 1912, unionized miners and tradespeople from southern Alberta first agreed to work together under the umbrella of a labour central. Since then, as the largest workers’ organization in the province, the AFL fights to defend and advance the rights of working people, and we mobilize Albertans to affect change through collective action.

We believe in the power of working together to achieve a better deal for workers and families. That’s why we’re organizing to tell Alberta’s politicians that Workers Demand Better.
