Welcome to the NCFO!

Welcome to the National Conference of Firemen & Oilers (NCFO). We are a labor union that proudly celebrates over 100 years of service, both on and off the job, to thousands of workers and their families. Our members can be found working in a variety of occupational fields among both private and public employers throughout the United States.


Our mission is to build and grow a diverse, effective, politically independent and democratic organization of workers to change our lives for the better, improve our communities, and build a more just society for present and future generations.

We recognize our successes and learn from our setbacks. We strive to be strategic, organized, inclusive, honest, respectful, optimistic and confident.
