Historical Note

The Texas AFL-CIO was formed on July 29, 1957 when the Texas State Federation of Labor and the Texas State CIO Council merged. The organization, a federation of local unions and central labor councils in Texas, is a central body that represents labor interests and acts as the policy-making, educational, and legislative arm of AFL-CIO labor at the state level. Although it does not negotiate collective bargaining contracts for its members, it does serve as the voice for all Texas AFL-CIO labor in the Texas Legislature and the United States Congress.

Delegates to annual conventions determine policy directives which are then carried out by the Texas AFL-CIO executive board and officers. The Committee on Political Education (COPE) of the Texas AFL-CIO also makes statewide political endorsements during conventions on even-numbered years.


Scope and Contents

Contains correspondence, memos, minutes, financial documents, newsletters, press releases, reports, political posters, campaign and convention materials, clippings, posters, photographs, lists, booklets, and pamphlets. These are copies of materials printed for distribution by AFL-CIO organizations.
