Growth of Organized Labor during the 1930s
During the 1930s, organized labor grew significantly, its membership trebling from 3.6 million in 1930 to more than 10 million in 1941. New Deal legislation, particularly the National Labor Relations Act (better known as the Wagner Act), aided this growth, as did the efforts of New Dealers such as Secretary of Labor Frances Perkins. So too did the unionization of unskilled workers that followed the split within the ranks of the American Federation of Labor (AFL) and the formation of the Congress of Industrial Organization (CIO) in 1938. The surge in CIO membership resulted largely from the successful unionization of the automobile and steel industries after bitter strikes.
