South Central Federation of Labor
The South Central Federation of Labor is an umbrella organization for labor unions in Dane, Dodge, Sauk, Columbia, Jefferson and Iowa Counties. Currently there are over 97 labor organizations, representing more than 45,000 workers, affiliated with SCFL.
Just as workers join together to form unions because there is strength in numbers and collective action, so too unions join together in Central Labor Councils, like SCFL, for the same reasons. There are 600 Central Labor Councils throughout the United States, each with a specific geographic jurisdiction.
The best unions are democratically run and take their direction from the membership. So too with Central Labor Councils. Hence, SCFL is whatever its affiliated unions, as determined through actions taken by their delegates, want.
