About the New Jersey State AFL-CIO
In New Jersey, local unions enjoy the opportunity to join together with 1,000 local unions and one million union members under the auspices of the New Jersey State AFL-CIO. The resources of the New Jersey State AFL-CIO are committed to representing union members and their families through pursuing strong legislative and political initiatives, and by organizing and member mobilization. The New Jersey State AFL-CIO has an impressive track record of securing the passage of critical legislation which serves the interests of working families, and halting hundreds of bills which would have destroyed jobs and benefits across many sectors of our state.
Additionally, the New Jersey State AFL-CIO has established Service/Industrial, Retirees, Committee on Political Education, and Community Services Departments to address the issues facing working families. We also maintain active statewide Public Employee, Living Wage, Organizing, and Health Care Advisory Committees in place. The New Jersey State AFL-CIO is further committed to communicating frequently with affiliates through the Labor Fax, Solidarity Alerts, Legislative Alerts, and through our website.
