The Northwest Arkansas Labor Council, chartered in 1958, is an expression of the hopes and aspirations of the working people of Benton, Carroll, Madison, and Washington Counties. It is one of nine central labor councils (CLCs) in Arkansas, bringing together all local unions from the public sector and many industries in our region to determine positions and take action on local and statewide issues.
We seek the fulfillment of these hopes and aspirations through democratic processes and consistent with our institutions and traditions. At the collective bargaining table, in job training and education programs, in service to the community, in the exercise of the rights and responsibilities, we seek to serve the interests of working people and their families.
We pledge ourselves to a more effective organization of working men and women; to the securing for them the full recognition and enjoyment of the rights to which they are justly entitled; to the achievement of ever higher standards of living and working conditions; to the attainment of security for all the people; to the enjoyment of the leisure which their skills make possible; and to the strengthening and extension of our way of life and fundamental freedoms.
We shall strive always to win full respect for the dignity of the human individuals whom our unions serve.
