ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY

The American Federation of Labor (AFL) was the first federation of labor unions in the United States. It was founded in May of 1886 in Columbus, Ohio. Samuel Gompers of the Cigar Makers' International Union was elected president every year except one up until he passed away in 1924. The AFL was the largest union grouping in the United States in the first half of the 20th Century, even after the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO) was formed.
In 1955 the AFL merged with the CIO (longtime rival), to form the AFL-CIO, a federation of unions which remains today.
