The AFL-CIO, created in 1955 by the merger of the AFL and the CIO, is a democratic, voluntary federation of 56 national and international labor unions that represent 12.2 million working people. We are teachers and miners, firefighters and farm workers, bakers and engineers, pilots and public employees, doctors and nurses, teachers, painters and plumbers?and more, including 3.2 million members of our community affiliate Working America, which represents people who do not have a union at work. We have partnerships with groups of people whose work usually does not have the protection of many labor laws and who often are mistreated on the job, including taxi workers, carwash workers in Los Angeles, guest workers, nannies, housekeepers and in-home caretakers.
