The AFL-CIO or American Federation of Labor-Congress of Industrial Organizations is a federation of 60 member American labor unions which encompasses all but a handful of major labor unions in the country and represents more than 13 million of Americans working in virtually every part of the economy.




The AFL-CIO was created in 1955 by the merger of the American Federation of Labor and the Congress of Industrial Organizations. The AFL-CIO's first president, George Meany, was succeeded in 1979 by Lane Kirkland.

On July 24, 2005, major news organizations, including the New York Times reported that several of the nation's largest unions were considering leaving the AFL-CIO.
