Labor Studies

Our Mission

The mission of the Institute for Labor Studies and Research is to strengthen labor-management relations at the local, state, regional and national levels by providing teaching, research, and service programs that improve the efficiency, mutual gains, and general well-being of employees, the unions to which they belong, and the businesses that employ them.

Every year the Institute for Labor Studies and Research conducts a wide variety of programs for thousands of trade unionists throughout the state, region, and nation.
