We are one of nearly 500 state and local labor councils of the AFL-CIO and are the heart of the labor movement. We are democratically elected bodies dedicated to represent the interests of working people at the state and local level. We mobilize our members and community partners to advocate for social and economic justice and we strive daily to vanquish oppression and make our communities better for all people—regardless of race, color, gender, religion, age, sexual orientation, or ethnic or national origin.
Sisters and Brothers of the Rock County Labor Council, as you probably heard, we recently held elections of officers at our December Meeting. Although they chose not to run this term, I wanted to thank both Ivan Collins and Kevin Bishop for their hard work and tireless hours spent on behalf of labor. They both plan to continue their hard work while focusing in on Laborfest and a variety of other Labor functions.

President – Shawn Reents
Recording Secretary – Mike Williams
Treasurer – Teri Laws
Vice President – Jim Millard
