Vintage Union Medal - AFL CIO Necklace
This genuine union delegate medal is from the May 1961 Philadelphia convergence of the AFL and CIO as they fought to maintain worker rights in the context of growing business interests. The American Federation of Labor (AFL) was originally founded in 1886 and the Congress of International Organizations in 1938. The two merged in 1955.
