About Us

We are one of nearly 500 state and local labor councils of the AFL-CIO and are the heart of the labor movement. We are democratically elected bodies dedicated to represent the interests of working people at the state and local level. We mobilize our members and community partners to advocate for social and economic justice and we strive daily to vanquish oppression and make our communities better for all people—regardless of race, color, gender, religion, age, sexual orientation, or ethnic or national origin.

ILA Disaffiliation Statement

International Longshoreman’s Association (ILA) after 61 years of membership with the AFL-CIO has decided to disaffiliate themselves from the AFL-CIO.  This disaffiliation has impacted the SC AFL-CIO President,  as he is a member of the ILA.  In order for Mr. Brave to continue to serve as President he has decided to join the Washington Baltimore News Guild (TNG-CWA 32035).  If you have any questions please contact the office either by email or by phone 803-926-8680.
