The American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) is the largest federation of unions in North America. It is made up of national unions, international unions, and state labor federations, together representing more than 12 million active and retired workers.
If you’re interested in starting a union in your workplace, but need help from a seasoned union organizer, a good place to start is with your state labor federation. Your state AFL-CIO affiliate can help put you in contact with the best union for your workplace situation and organizing needs.
Below you can find a directory of the major labor federations in all 50 states, plus Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia.
If you represent a federation listed in this directory and would like to update your organization’s information, please contact Freedom to Join Together.
