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

Er hat 56 nationale und internationale Mitgliedsorganisationen,[1] die zusammen 12,7 Millionen (Stand: September 2014)[2] Organisierte vertreten.

Die AFL-CIO ist Mitglied des Internationalen Gewerkschaftsbundes (IGB). In der Mitgliederliste des IGB wird die Mitgliedschaft mit 8.400.000 angegeben (Stand: November 2017).[3]

Geschichte[Bearbeiten | Quelltext 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.
