LEPAIO - Labor Education Project on AFL-CIO International Operations :

What we stand for:

This website is for Labor Education on the character, structure, and ties of the largest labor union confederation in the US, the AFL-CIO.

AFL-CIO is a US-based confederation. However, it has its branches and offices through its affiliates worldwide.   Working closely with and taking money from the US government and the State Department, it can not be considered an independent confederation in the service of the labor movement.

We examine its ties to the US government and its close relationship with dictators worldwide, and in many cases, its prevention of any emerging and existing independent worker struggle around the world.

It is high time the labor movement in the US recognizes that we indeed need an independent labor movement and an independent confederation of unions whose responsibility is only to the workers and not to the bosses or the US State Department.

Building global worker solidarity

Unions are the only organizations that will further the economic-democratic gains of the workers.

However, workers’ struggles have been stifled by the lieutenants of the bosses pretending to represent the working class.  

To impact and lift the blockade in front of the labor, we need our democratic unions where the officials answer only to the rank and file.

Democracy and Internationalism

Unions need to be democratic to represent the workers.  Enough sell-outs!  Rank and file to the leadership.
