Labor Relations and Research Center

Founded in 1964, the Labor Relations and Research Center (LRRC) is an integrated program of graduate education, research, and direct service to workers and the labor movement. The Center's faculty and staff also conduct national research about work and labor, including research on organizing, strategic campaigns, labor and community coalitions, living wage campaigns, and globalization. Much of this work has been funded by the labor movement. We also offer research services in support of organizing, bargaining, and in the policy arena for regional and local unions and state and central labor bodies.
