    Our History

    From the earliest days of the American colonies, when apprentice laborers in Charleston, S.C. went on strike for better pay in the 1700s, to the first formal union of workers in 1829 who sought to reduce their time on the job to 60 hours a week, our nation’s working people have recognized that joining together is the most effective means of improving their lives on and off the job.

    Our 21st century workplace rights and protections—like the eight-hour day and laws covering safety and health on the job—have been won by the struggles and sacrifices of working women and men who were empowered by the strength of solidarity and whose actions embodied the America dream of fairness and an opportunity for all to succeed.

    Legislation and Politics

    Working men and women have strength in numbers and the goal of the Utah AFL-CIO’s legislative and political efforts is organizing that strength to win the good pay, retirement security, safe work environments, broad access to quality education for our children and much more.  By mobilizing our union members, we elect candidates who support and will enact a working families’ agenda.

    All candidates seeking an endorsement from the Utah AFL-CIO

    The first step in our process is to have interested candidates send us a simple one page (2-3 paragraphs) letter.  The letter should include a short introduction and a request for endorsement consideration from the Utah AFL-CIO.  After receiving this letter we will schedule an interview with our endorsement committee.  Following your interview, the committee will determine whether to make an endorsement.
