Description

"To be a strong voice for working men and women in the work place, the market place and in the political life of our state.Our Goal:To improve the lives of working families.he Georgia State AFL-CIO is the chartered state federation of the National AFL-CIO representing all affiliated AFL-CIO Unions in Georgia. Our role is to carry out the programs of the National AFL-CIO, to represent our affiliated local unions in the state legislature and lobby for their benefit on legislation. We screen and endorse candidates for Congress, state legislature and statewide office. The screening process is conducted by delegates elected by the membership of our affiliated local unions. When the endorsements are made, we work to get these candidates elected. We work with community services and charities, assist when possible in organizing, educate our members on issues, and assist our affiliated local unions, councils, and labor councils when asked. We encourage our affiliated local unions and their members to be active in their communities, to participate fully in the political process by being registered to vote and exercising that right, and to contact their representatives and express their opinion on issues of importance to working people." The organization endorsed the following representatives in that year.
