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.
