The North Carolina State American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (NC State AFL-CIO) is the largest association of unions of working people in North Carolina, representing over a hundred thousand members, working together for good jobs, safe workplaces, workers’ rights, consumer protections, and quality public services on behalf of ALL working people.
The contributions of all local unions in North Carolina are vital to sustaining our state’s labor movement. Each local’s views and energy in addressing concerns common to all workers are what our movement needs.
We are a democratic organization, governed by a constitution, and accountable to our member unions. The affiliated membership elects our leadership – one full-time officer and an executive board representative of unions across North Carolina. The programs we undertake and the services we offer are also determined by our membership.
