AFL-CIO & Craft Unionism
About the AFL-CIO - The AFL-CIO is the umbrella federation for U.S. unions, with 56 unions representing 12.5 million working men and women.
We work to make the voices of working people heard in the White House, on Capitol Hill, in state capitals across the country and in corporate boardrooms. We provide an independent voice for working families and ways for working people to be actively engaged in politics and legislation.
