The Los Angeles Federation of Labor was officially organized by the five unions of printers, cigar makers, tailors, carpenters, and bakers on June 23, 1889. The National AFL and CIO merged in 1955 and with the California State Federation of Labor in 1957. By early 1959 the Los Angeles Central Labor Council, five other central labor bodies, and the Greater Los Angeles CIO Council merged to create the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO. The records in the collection consist primarily of administrative records that document the activities of the Federation from 1937 through 1963.
