WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE DO
The Hawai'i State AFL-CIO is a voluntary federation of 74 local affiliate unions and councils in the state. Our
purpose is to use the collective strength of the labor movement in the state to protect and advance the interests of all
workers and their families. We provide affiliates with a mechanism to exchange views and make decisions to promote a
unified voice and unified action. We provide affiliates with a process to come together in support of political candidates,
to fight for legislation and cooperate in other mutually agreed on goals, programs, and services.
