Corporate Watch

Our economy works best when corporations act responsibly toward their employees, their customers, the environment, and local communities. Yet, too many corporate CEOs choose management strategies for short-term gains that undermine their companies in the long term.

Here's what the AFL-CIO is doing to address the problems in corporate America:

  • The AFL-CIO works to change anti-worker corporate practices through shareholder-driven reforms.
  • Executive Paywatch is the leading watchdog of runaway CEO pay and its effect on economic inequality.
  • The Mutual Fund Votes Survey examines how mutual funds voted on executive compensation.
  • The AFL-CIO Capital Stewardship Program advocates for greater corporate accountability and well regulated capital markets.
  • The AFL-CIO Research Resources provide the tools for unions and community activists to conduct their own corporate research.
