The Labor Studies Center is a comprehensive labor education center committed to strengthening the capacity of organized labor to represent the needs and interests of workers, while at the same time strengthening the University's interdisciplinary research and teaching on labor and labor relations issues. The Center's primary areas of research and practice include: training and technical assistance to unions on labor relations and workplace issues; an undergraduate Labor Studies major and internship program; interventions to increase the organizational effectiveness of unions; the development and diffusion of constructive labor-management relations practices, particularly in the public sector; the formation and institutionalization of labor-community coalitions; and the impact of lean production systems on workers and labor relations practice in the North American auto industry.
