The North Carolina State AFL-CIO is an organization made up of local unions from across North Carolina. Member unions come from a variety of National & International Unions whose whole membership spans North America and beyond.

In much the same way our State Federation represents the collective interests of our membership at the state level, local union members and working families can have a voice in their communities by way of Central Labor Councils (CLCs). North Carolina has eight such CLCs that cover every region of the state, from Manteo to Murphy.
