The strongest tradition in American trade unionism has probably been that of autonomy—the right of individual unions to manage their own internal affairs without interference from the parent federation. In 1952, however, George Meany became president of the AFL, and since has compelled individual affiliated unions to reform nullifying the doctrine of autonomy.
