REPORT FROM THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION OF THE AMERICAN FEDERATION OF TEACHERS

The 100th Anniversary Celebration of the American Federation of Teachers was held in Minneapolis, Minnesota from July 17-21, 2016.

In 1916 the American Federation of Teachers was formed, when eight local unions came together in Chicago and applied for a charter from the AFL. Now membership is at its highest point ever, with more than 1.62 million members and the largest number of affiliates at 3,450, and we continue the fight against multipronged and well-funded efforts to destroy America’s labor movement and all that unions have built and stood for.
