About Indiana AFL-CIO

The Indiana State AFL-CIO (American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations) is a federation of approximately 800 local unions in Indiana belonging to 50 International Unions. The National AFL-CIO is the parent organization and entrusts to the Indiana State AFL-CIO the power to carry out their policies and programs and to tailor and shape additional programs for Indiana. We are entrusted to promote and advance the objects and principles of the AFL-CIO.

The Indiana State AFL-CIO was formed on May 24, 1958 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Every two years a convention is held with delegates from local unions and councils.  Convention delegates have the power to amend the constitution, pass resolutions and establish current policy for the organization. Local unions pay a monthly per-capita tax based on their membership and councils pay an annual fee. Officers (President Brett Voorhies, Secretary-Treasurer Joe Breedlove and Vice-Presidents) are elected to four year terms and make up the Executive Board, which meets four times a year and oversees the running of the organization between conventions.

  3. To encourage all workers without regard to race, creed, color or national origin to share in the full benefits of union organization. To cooperate with affiliated bodies in development of, and leadership in educational programs for their membership.
