The Washington State Labor Council is the Washington branch of the AFL-CIO. It represents all AFL-CIO affiliates in state politics, and its major interest group, particularly for Democratic politicians. The organization was split when several national unions broke from the AFL-CIO and formed the Change to Win Coalition, taking their state and local affiliates with them. Jeffrey Johnson has been the President of the State Labor Council since January 2011. Other prominent leaders have included Rick Bender, Lou Stewart, and Alan Link, the organization's current Secretary-Treasurer (equivalent to Executive Director).
