About WED

Workforce and Economic Development

Workforce & Economic Development Program

The WED program of the California Labor Federation serves as a statewide intermediary that promotes good jobs and career pathways for all workers in California. WED’s goal is to build a labor oriented workforce system that syncs the state’s diverse industry sectors by promoting labor-management partnerships and leveraging labor union resources as a means to create a shared economy for all.

WED thinks regionally. WED partners with Local Workforce Development Boards, Central Labor Councils, Building and Construction Trades Councils, Local Unions, Community Colleges, CBO’s, and various State agencies to save good jobs and grow skilled workforce in California.
