Historical Note:

The San Diego-Imperial Counties Labor Council is heir to the San Diego Federated Trades and Labor Council, which was created in 1891. The Federated Trades and Labor Council was originally comprised of members of the Typographical Workers, Cigar Makers, Longshoremen, and Sailors Unions. In 1970, the Imperial County Labor Council merged with the San Diego Federated Trades and Labor Council to form the present San Diego-Imperial Counties Labor Council. The Council is affiliated with the AFL-CIO.
