Growing and strengthening west Michigan's middle class
The Kent-Ionia Labor Council (KICLC) is an affiliation of 33 labor unions partnered with community and religious organizations throughout west Michigan, with a mission to raise the standard of living for working people and create stronger communities through collective action and service to others.
We are electricians, public employees, musicians, pipe fitters, postal workers, bricklayers, utility workers, truck drivers, warehouse workers, stage employees, office workers, retail workers, plumbers, millwrights, operating engineers, bus drivers, healthcare professionals and more. In short, we are your neighbors, and we are fighting for a stronger middle class, as well as social and economic justice.
We are part of the national AFL-CIO, as well as an affiliate of the Michigan AFL-CIO.
