RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan and congressional candidate Clay Aiken are among the scheduled speakers at the annual convention of the state AFL-CIO in Raleigh.

Almost 200 delegates are expected to attend the convention, which will be held Thursday and Friday. Other speakers include national AFL-CIO Executive Vice President Tefere Gebre (ta-FAR’-e Ga-BRAY’), Raleigh City Council member Mary Ann Baldwin and state Sen. Josh Stein.

Panel discussions include building power for workers in 2014 and growing the labor movement in the South.
