About the Maine AFL-CIO

Founded in 1956, the Maine AFL-CIO is a federation of 150 local unions representing 26,000 workers, 5 central labor councils and six national union and industry councils. We represent all kinds of workers -- teachers, papermakers, truck drivers, nurses, letter carriers, firefighters, shipbuilders, and many more. For a full list of our affiliates, click here . Our mission is to improve the lives of working families—to bring economic justice to the workplace and social justice to our state and the nation. The Maine AFL-CIO has three major roles in accomplishing that mission:

  • Labor Solidarity - The Maine AFL-CIO supports Maine workers when they come together to join a union and as they bargain with employers to improve their living conditions and workplaces.
  • Legislative Advocacy - The Maine AFL-CIO and its affiliates fight for policies that improve the lives and working conditions of our state's union members and working families.
  • Political Advocacy - The Maine AFL-CIO endorses electoral candidates that stand up for Maine's workers and union members.
