The Alliance of Progressive Labor (APL) is a “national labor center”. Consistent with its belief in social movement unionism, APL has built itself as a “multi-form center”, drawing into its fold various forms of labor organizations and not just trade unions. In the future, APL sees itself as a singular union structure consolidated along industry and geographical lines.

APL was formally organized on November 1996 through a National Founding Congress.

It is committed to the advancement of Social movement unionism – a strategy directed at recognizing, organizing and mobilizing all types of workers and unions for engagements in different arenas of struggle.

Its mission is to organize the working people into various forms of organizations. To merge these organizations along industry, sectoral and geographic lines.
