Every four years, 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 leader 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.
In order to protect the health and safety of our delegates and hold a safe, in-person event in Philadelphia, the AFL-CIO Executive Council unanimously delayed the AFL-CIO's quadrennial convention from October 2021 to June 2022.
