Those elected to public office exert a tremendous impact on our lives and the North Carolina State AFL-CIO is actively involved in helping to elect worker friendly candidates for national, statewide and local offices. At the beginning of every election cycle, representatives from unions across the state gather to hear from and screen candidates for the purpose of making endorsements. The membership is encouraged to vote for these endorsed candidates and to volunteer some of their free time to help those candidates. This process is driven by issues, not political party affiliation.
