AFL-CIO

The NC State AFL-CIO is the North Carolina affiliate of the AFL-CIO. [1] It represents the interests of North Carolina unions and promotes left-of-center policies on a variety of topics, including critical race theory-aligned racial policy and LGBT interests. [2] [3]

Background and Activities

The NC State AFL-CIO was founded in 1957, [4] two years after the 1955 merger of its national counterpart. [5] North Carolina has been a right to work state since before the NC State AFL-CIO was formed, meaning workers cannot be compelled to pay union fees as a condition of employment in the state. [6]

The NC State AFL-CIO membership includes eight Central Labor Councils that work in a particular geographic area within the state. [7] The organization supports labor strikes in North Carolina, as well as progressive policy priorities such as a $15 minimum wage. [8] It frequently attacks North Carolina Republican officials while endorsing Democratic candidates in North Carolina, including judicial candidates. [9] [10] [11]

The organization’s 2020 Annual Report claimed credit for the re-election of Gov. Roy Cooper (D) and other statewide progressive officials and for flipping of two congressional seats from Republican to Democratic after court-ordered redistricting altered the districts’ boundaries. [12]

The NC State AFL-CIO is led by MaryBe McMillan, a veteran North Carolina labor union operative. [13]

Funding

In 2019, the NC State AFL-CIO received $848,396 in revenue, of which nearly 80 percent was from program service revenue. [14] It spent $31,903 on political campaign activity in 2019. [15]
