On the Anniversary of the AFL and CIO Merger, Listen to George Meany's First Speech to the AFL-CIO Convention

Dec. 5 marked the anniversary of the merger of the AFL and CIO in 1955. As we look toward the future, we remember that we can learn a great deal about ourselves as a movement of working people coming together from the past. 

Thanks to the University of Maryland, we can easily access George Meany's speech at the first joint AFL-CIO Convention in New York City. 

We hope you find it as inspiring today as we do:
