Chicago had become the headquarters of the nation's socialists and anarchists' movements and a center of strength for moderate labor like the Knights of Labor.
Chicago, which had become the capital of American trade unions, was also the capital of the mobilized anarchist movement, led by German-American workers.
Although the Knights of Labor were at one time the most powerful labor organization in America, their involvement in the Haymarket Riot forever tarnished their reputation and caused a revulsion of feeling against unions by the American public.

 Chicago Federation of Labor - About Us
The CFL was formed in the late 1800s to strengthen the efforts of individual union locals by creating a unified voice for the city's labor movement.
The main objective of the CFL, both when it formed over 100 years ago and continues today, is to stand up for working men and women by supporting organizing efforts to ensure that workers' rights are upheld both on the job and in the courts.
The CFL also plays the role of labor's ambassador to the larger Chicago community by working closely with the Chicago Convention and Tourism Bureau and city and business leaders on other committees to keep Chicago's economy growing.

The CFL made three previous unsuccessful attempts at a labor party, but it was not until October 6, 1918, when the CFL asked the president of the State Federation to "call a convention in the immediate future for the purpose of considering the advisability of forming in Illinois an independent labor party.
Labor's attempt at an anti-injunction clause and a endorsement for the rights of labor were voted down by the convention, Chicago's attempt at home rule and greater representation in the state legislature was defeated, a terrible taxation system was created, and many felt that too much power was granted to the state supreme court.
As Jeff Weiss stresses, the point of Federation News is to "keep as an historical record, and to be used in the present." While the Chicago labor press may soon move into the paperless world of the internet, the legacy it leaves behind is impressive.

So at the convention of the American Federation of Labor in St. Paul a resolution was introduced asking the organizations in the steel industry to get together and organize an organization committee.

With just 8 percent of private-sector workers now belonging to organized labor, the exit of two of the biggest unions -- with a handful of others expected to follow -- could qualify as the organizational equivalent of a civil war in the leper colony.
To the displeasure of conservatives and many capitalists, labor used its political clout to successfully back public policies that addressed the shortcomings and cruel indifference of a free market: child labor laws, unemployment insurance, retirement security, workmen's compensation, the 40-hour work week.
Labor also consistently backed a richer and fuller non-work life through adequate funding of public schools, public parks and recreation, public transportation, public libraries and affordable health care.

She demonstrates that the CFL "played a key role in organically connecting the struggle for a democratic diplomacy to the struggle for industrial democracy" (5).
Naturally, Chicago activists were hampered by their isolation from Washington's corridors of power and by their distance from AFL orthodoxy.
By exaggerating the differences between the CFL on the one hand and the AFL and Wilson on the other, McKillen obscures an important truth about John Dewey's "plastic juncture." Militant democracy of the sort envisioned by the CFL was energized by the rise of Wilsonianism, even though it was ultimately betrayed by Wilson's failures.

Most of the Chicago group, however, were leaders in their local unions and also delegates to the Chicago Federation of Labor.
The Chicago group of militants were in a favorable position to get results in their aggressive unionizing campaigns.
Significant of the left-wing influence in all this radicalism was the fact that when later on, in 1923, the left-center alliance in Chicago was broken, the C. of L. soon degenerated into a routine, conservative Gompers organization.
