American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations

The largest umbrella organization for unions in the United States. It represents more than 11 million workers in the U.S. and Canada. While it has little direct control over member unions, it is a powerful political force for organized labor and carries a great deal of influence. It was established in 1955 as the result of a merger between the AFL and the CIO.
