Die American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) ist der mitgliederstärkste Gewerkschaftsdachverband der USA und Kanadas.

Er hat 57 nationale und internationale Mitgliedsorganisationen, welche zusammen 11,5 Millionen (Stand: 30. Juni 2012)[1] Organisierte vertreten. Er ist Mitglied im Internationalen Bund Freier Gewerkschaften.

Geschichte[Bearbeiten]

1935 hatte sich die CIO (Congress of Industrial Organizations) von der AFL (American Federation of Labor) abgespalten. 1955 vereinigten sich beide wieder zur AFL-CIO.

Bis 2005 arbeitete er praktisch als zentraler Dachverband. Interne Meinungsverschiedenheiten führten dazu, dass im Juli/August 2005 zahlreiche Gewerkschaften (darunter mit der Dienstleistungsgewerkschaft SEIU die größte Einzelgewerkschaft) austraten und sich unter einem neuen DachverbandChange to win“ formierten.
