Searching for issues with multiple labels when I'm only interested in one of those labels

We have issues that may have no label, one label (e.g. A), or multiple labels (e.g. A,B,C). I have been able to create searches that find issues that have no label, or have only one specific label, but I have not been able to create a search that finds issues containing a particular label. Everything I have tried fails to retrieve issues that have multiple labels (e.g. A,B,C) when I am interested in something like labels ~ B or labels !~ B. Help?

Thanks! I found both of these and did not think they applied, but once I tested them, they worked great!

I have the same issue.  I have read both links multiple times and have tried eveything I can think of for combinations but nothing works.  I have Jira with an unknown number of and name of labels and I need to look for one specific label among them.  So I need to look for label B in amongst who knows what other labels.  How do I do that?
