The Worker Center is a division of the M. L. King County Labor Council. Their mission is to increase the Council's capacity to carry out initiatives that generate high skill, high wage jobs, improve workforce and training systems, better the delivery of services for dislocated workers, and build alliances with community and environmental organizations.
King County Reemployment Center
This program organizes the community's response to plant closures and mass layoffs. It works with community partners to set up labor-management readjustment committees at the sites of employers as the best way to get information and services to people before they are on their last paycheck. The RSC publishes the Job Seekers Update, which is a guide to free and low cost job search assistance in King County. (See attachment below for the most recent Job Seekers Update!)
The Trades Mentor Network (TMN)
This program aims to increase retention of women and people of color in state-certified apprenticeship programs. It currently operates Jobsite Apprentice Mentoring, which matches trades mentors with apprentices on major construction projects.
King County Community and Technical College Labor Liaison
This program provides services designed to foster and facilitate authentic partnerships between the colleges and the M. L. King County Labor Council. The primary goal of this work is to improve the quality of education and training programs through joint labor-college activities.
