Mrs. Meir to Address Afl-cio National Convention in Atlantic City

Prime Minister Golda Meir has accepted an invitation from the American labor movement to address the national convention of the AFL-CIO at Atlantic City on October 2. Mrs. Meir will go to Atlantic City in the course of a tour that will follow her official visit to Washington in late September as the guest of President Nixon.

The AFL-CIO decided to honor Mrs. Meir, a veteran worker in the labor movement, when it was learned that she would be in the United States at the time of the Atlantic City convention. The AFL-CIO has taken a strong pro-Israel stand and maintains close ties with Histadrut, the Israeli Federation of Labor.
