The AFL-CIO envisions a future in which work and all people who work are valued, respected and rewarded. While the AFL-CIO represents millions of working people who belong to unions and have the benefits of union membership, the labor federation embraces all people who share the common bond of work.

Work is what we do to better ourselves, to build dreams and to support our families. But work is more than that. Work cures, creates, builds, innovates and shapes the future. Work connects us all.

The AFL-CIO is an organization of people who work. We help lead a movement for social and economic justice in America and the world.


Alaska AFL-CIO supports Walker - Mallott in 2018 Election

August 24, 2018- The Alaska AFL-CIO convention delegates proudly endorsed Governor Bill Walker and Lt. Governor Byron Mallott for re-election on November 6th, 2018. “Candidates Bill Walker and Mark Begich addressed our convention delegates and explained their vision for their future,” said Vince Beltrami, President of the Alaska AFL-CIO. “We have a long relationship with both candidates and they each have a strong record of supporting working families. The question before us, and Alaskans, is whether Governor Walker has done enough to earn a second term. The delegates overwhelmingly think he does.” You can read more below to learn about the long list of actions taken by Governor Walker in support of working families and all Alaskans:

April 5th, 2017: The municipality of Anchorage election results are in and the candidates endorsed by the Anchorage Central Labor Council and local unions overwhelmingly won their races. This is no doubt in part due to the continued dedication of our volunteer force that came out every Saturday to knock on union members' doors to educate them about the issues and candidates before them.

Voters also passed several bonds that will equal much-needed work for Anchorage residents.

Our work doesn't stop here. Now is the time to hold our elected officials accountable. New Assembly members begin their terms on April 18, 2017. Find the Anchorage Assembly meeting schedule here and get involved.
