A RESOLUTION
Honoring the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organization on its One Hundred Twenty-fifth Anniversary.

       WHEREAS,  The members of the House of Representatives of the 129th General Assembly of Ohio are pleased to congratulate the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organization on the auspicious occasion of the One Hundred Twenty-fifth Anniversary of the founding of the American Federation of Labor; and

       WHEREAS,  Recognition of this prestigious milestone is a fitting tribute to AFL-CIO, for it has achieved a remarkable record of service. AFL was founded in Columbus when the Federation of Organized Trades and Labor Union merged with the Knights of Labor in 1886, and it merged with the Congress of Industrial Organizations in 1955. AFL-CIO strives to improve the lives of working families, to bring economic justice to the workplace, and to bring social justice to the nation, and today, this voluntary federation of 57 national and international labor unions represents some 12.2 million members. The achievements of this group are a justifiable source of pride and an outstanding reflection not only on the organization itself but also on its dedicated members, for they have certainly distinguished themselves as conscientious and hard-working individuals; and 

       WHEREAS,  Over the years, AFL-CIO has enhanced the quality of life in our society, and through its tremendous contributions, it has earned the respect and gratitude of the many citizens it has so capably served. We are certain that as this worthy association maintains its dedication to service, it will continue in the tradition of excellence that has long been its hallmark; and

       WHEREAS,  AFL-CIO is truly deserving of high praise. We are proud to note that it is through the unceasing efforts of organizations such as this that the State of Ohio continues to prosper and remains a pleasant place in which to live and work; therefore be it

       RESOLVED,  That we, the members of the House of Representatives of the 129th General Assembly of Ohio, in adopting this Resolution, commend the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organization on the One Hundred Twenty-fifth Anniversary of the American Federation of Labor and extend best wishes for ongoing success; and be it further

       RESOLVED,  That the Clerk of the House of Representatives transmit a duly authenticated copy of this Resolution to the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organization.
