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

Download PDF for this date

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.
