THE VOICE OF LABOR IN TEXAS

We are teachers, firefighters and farm workers, actors and engineers, pilots and public employees, painters and plumbers, steelworkers and screenwriters, doctors and nurses, stagehands, electricians and more. We work the early shift and the late shift. We are the unemployed, students and retirees.
The Texas AFL-CIO is a state federation of labor unions representing 235,000 members in Texas. We advocate for working people in the political and legislative arenas.
