Numerous issues affect working families in the Quad Cities, across the country and around the world that need our attention and need to be addressed. From our current struggle for Good Jobs, Safe Jobs to our past struggles to increase the minimum wage, and ongoing struggles for quality affordable health care, union members fight for what’s right for the entire community, not just ourselves.
Supporting each other is what Solidarity is all about.
The Quad City Federation of Labor is there to help plan actions, rallies, spread the word and build support for issues affecting working families – among our union brothers and sisters and our larger communities.
We build Solidarity by working together with other unions, community organizations, student groups, faith-based organizations and many others on issues of common concern.If you have an issue that you think needs to be addressed, contact the Quad City Federation of Labor.
