Dec. 5 marks 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.
