Workers Memorial Day

On April 28, the unions of the AFL-CIO observe Workers Memorial Day to remember those who have suffered and died on the job and to renew the fight for safe jobs. It is a day where working people come together to call for action on hazards that cause unnecessary injury, illness and death. We will stand united against the ongoing attacks on workers' rights and protections and demand that elected officials put workers' well-being above corporate interests.

AFL-CIO Conventions

Every four years, the AFL-CIO holds a convention to democratically elect officers. Elected delegates representing working people from across the country and from every job category come together to choose their leaders and express their policy preferences. Our convention adopts resolutions that guide the labor movement and improve the lives of working people. Openness, transparency and democracy are key components of how we work.

The AFL-CIO 2017 Convention was held Oct. 22–25, 2017, in St. Louis.
