Unions Ensure Workers Have a Voice on the Job

We are teachers and iron workers, firefighters and social workers, bakers and engineers, pilots and public employees, doctors and nurses, electricians, painters and plumbers—and more.

The Rhode Island AFL-CIO works every day to improve the lives of people who work.

We help people who want to join together in unions so they can bargain collectively with their employers for better working conditions and the best way to get a good job done. We work to ensure that all people who work are treated fairly, with decent paychecks and benefits, safe jobs, respect and equal opportunities. To help working people acquire valuable skills and job-readiness for 21st century work, we operate the largest training network outside the U.S. military. And we provide an independent voice in politics and legislation for working women and men and make their voices heard in corporate boardrooms and the financial system.
