About Your District Council

Almost every Local Union is affiliated with one of LIUNA’s 46 District Councils, and many are structured on a statewide basis. District Councils are charged with many responsibilities, including:

  • Negotiating collective bargaining agreements for affiliated Local Unions.

  • In some cases, the District Council delegates the initial bargaining back to the Local Union, subject to District Council review; the Local Union is always represented on the bargaining committee for work affecting its members.  

  • Fostering harmony and united action between affiliated Local Unions.  

  • Coordinating and supporting the programs of the Local Union. 

  • Promoting unity of action in dealing with employers. 

  • Organizing the unorganized.
