Hard to believe, but a scrappy rank-and-file magazine and organizing institute, founded in 1979 to bring together leaders from an inspiring string of wildcat strikes and union reform caucuses, turns 35 this year. Labor Notes has grown a lot since then, training thousands of activists at regional Troublemaker Schools in recent years and publishing a daily stream of unique news and analysis about unions and work, from labor's point of view.
Labor Notes is more than a website and magazine. We're a network of rank-and-file members, union leaders, and labor activists who know the labor movement is worth fighting for. We encourage connections between workers in different unions, workers centers, communities, industries, and countries to strengthen the movement from the bottom up.
