  • The Alberta Federation of Labour is the Alberta provincial trade union federation of the Canadian Labour Congress. It has a membership of approximately 155,000 from 29 unions. The AFL was founded in 1912, when mining workers and tradespeople in Lethbridge organized to demand the establishment of occupational health and safety regulations in Alberta's coal fields which, at the time, had the highest workplace mortality rates in the world. Today, the Federation continues its tradition of advocacy on issues of concern to working people. Often these issues relate directly to the workplace, but sometimes they relate to broader social issues such as education, pensions, energy policy and public health care. (en)
