Representing AFL-CIO affiliates all over the state in political, organizing, and education efforts, it is headquartered in Tallahassee. William E. Allen, born in 1913, served as Financial Secretary and Business Agent of Carpenters' Local #696 and Secretary-Treasurer of the Florida AFL-CIO. In 1974, he was serving actively as a member of the Hillsborough County Licensing and Zoning Board; Florida Industrial Safety Code Committee; Florida Textbook Committee; Secretary-Treasurer of the Florida Apprenticeship Conference; and Vice-President of the Southern Labor School, AFL-CIO.
