Historical Note

The Texas AFL-CIO was formed on July 29, 1957 when the Texas State Federation of Labor and the Texas State CIO Council merged. The organization, a federation of local unions and central labor councils in Texas, is a central body that represents labor interests and acts as the policy-making, educational, and legislative arm of AFL-CIO labor at the state level. Although it does not negotiate collective bargaining contracts for its members, it does serve as the voice for all Texas AFL-CIO labor in the Texas Legislature and the United States Congress.

Delegates to annual conventions determine policy directives which are then carried out by the Texas AFL-CIO executive board and officers. The Committee on Political Education (COPE) of the Texas AFL-CIO also makes statewide political endorsements during conventions on even-numbered years.


Scope and Contents

Collection contains audio recordings (reel-to-reel and audiotape cassette). Included are recordings of annual conventions, meetings, conferences, debates, political speeches by and about national and state candidates, excerpts of radio broadcasts, discussions, lectures, and commentary on a variety of labor topics. Also included are audiotapes of some Texas State Federation of Labor and Texas State COPE conventions and filmstrips.


Organization

Recordings are arranged in chronological order. Recordings 84-92 were a later addition to the collection and constitute a new chronological order. Recordings consist of 90 audio recordings and 2 filmstrips.
