Central Labor Councils (CLCs) are the local labor movement of the AFL-CIO. Each CLC covers a geographic area of several counties in North Carolina.

CLCs are the bodies through which affiliated local unions are able to take collective action on issues important to them and directly affect the communities in which their members reside. CLCs provide a number of essential services to the union movement, including candidate screenings and endorsements and support of worker organizing campaigns of local unions affiliated with the federation.

There are eight CLCs in North Carolina (listed clockwise from the west):

Information on Each CLC

Each Central Labor Council elects its own leadership, maintains its own postal and/or e-mail address and phone numbers, sets times and dates for meetings, and establishes its own dues structure. We have listed as much of this information as possible, as provided by the CLCs. Additionally, we list the counties comprising the geographic area of each CLC.
