Another way you can help us win victories for NC working families
The NC State AFL-CIO is exploring options to help establish a sustainable and diverse funding stream that can grow our capacity to execute our vision of building a bigger, more engaged, more powerful labor movement that can win victories for North Carolina working families.
In order to help make this vision a reality, the NC State AFL-CIO is introducing an opportunity to “Sponsor the House of Labor.”
Built in 1914, our office is your North Carolina federation of labor’s greatest asset, valued at approximately $800,000. Now, affiliated International Unions and Local Unions, as well as individual union members, are eligible to sponsor one or more rooms in the “House of Labor,” the headquarters building of the NC State AFL-CIO, located at 1408 Hillsborough Street, Raleigh, NC 27605.
The first round of building sponsorships will be announced at our 62nd Annual Convention, September 19-20, 2019 in Charlotte, with plaques awarded to affiliate representatives and mounted in the building in October and November 2019.
Affiliates and individual union members who can’t commit to a two-year sponsorship can make a one-time contribution to the House of Labor building fund in any amount instead.
For more detailed information about sponsorship opportunities and costs, read the sponsorship plan.
To become an official sponsor of the “House of Labor,” return your completed building sponsorship form and payment made out to “NC State AFL-CIO” with “building fund” on the memo line to PO Box 10805, Raleigh, NC 27605.
