Central Labor Council of Nashville and Middle Tennessee

What is the Central Labor Council?

We are more than 20,000 working families in Nashville & Middle TN, represented by more than 40 affiliated local unions and community organizations. We are united for dignity, respect, and fairness on the job and in our community. Join with us because together we're much stronger than we are alone!

Do you have a plan to vote? Do you have a plan after that?

The upcoming election may be one of the most important in our lifetimes. Can we count on you to join us in casting your vote for our endorsed, pro-labor candidates?

Take Action

The HEROES Act has been sitting on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s desk for months, but now he wants to ram through a Supreme Court nomination. Tell your senators we need COVID-19 relief, not a Supreme Court power grab.

The labor movement is working nonstop to ensure workers devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic receive the protections and support needed during this challenging time. Get involved and make sure the needs of working people are heard.
