North Carolina State AFL-CIO

About Us

The North Carolina State American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (NC State AFL-CIO) is the federation of unions in North Carolina, representing over a hundred thousand members. We advocate for good jobs, safe workplaces, workers’ rights, consumer protections, and quality public services on behalf of ALL working people.

The mission of the NC State AFL-CIO is to build a bigger, more politically powerful, anti-racist labor movement to win victories for North Carolina working families. To do that, we focus on these areas of work:

  • Grow the movement by supporting internal organizing, new external organizing, and the broader worker fight-back including efforts to raise wages, strengthen our freedom to organize, and increase public support for unions.
  • Strengthen and broaden the movement by building solidarity across racial lines and incorporating the fight for racial justice in all our work.
  • Engage and mobilize our leaders, our members, and community allies by communicating, educating, and activating around policy issues, political campaigns, and union fights.
  • Build independent political power for working people by driving a pro-worker legislative agenda, electing pro-worker candidates including our own members to office, holding elected officials accountable, and winning policies on all levels to help working people.
