About Roundtable..

Massachusetts Worker Education Roundtable is a statewide network of unionists, educators and labor-management education programs. Our mission is to promote and provide high quality education programs for Massachusetts’ union members.  To this end we are involved in policy around workplace learning, and we provide technical assistance to unions and their employer partners who are interested in establishing learning programs at the workplace.  We also provide professional development opportunities for educators in workplace education, particularly teaching in a unionized workplace.  We work closely with the Massachusetts AFL-CIO and are members of the national Association of Joint Labor-Management Education Programs.

We also participate in discussions of policy and practice in the adult education and workforce development communities, in such venues as the Massachusetts Coalition for Adult Education, Boston Workforce Development Coalition and Massachusetts Workforce Alliance.  Our focus is on basic skills, including adult basic education, English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), computer literacy and GED preparation. Some programs in the network offer other classes such as career ladders, technical training, communication skills or writing.  While most of our programs serve incumbent workers at their place of work, some also work with unemployed workers, dislocated workers or offer classes at the union hall or in the community.
