Making Oregon Work for Working Oregonians

The Labor Education and Research Center is a state-wide program that combines teaching, research, and public service to improve the lives of Oregon’s workers, their families, and their communities.


Summer Institute on Union Women — SAVE the DATE!

The UC Berkeley Labor Center will host the 37th annual Western Regional Summer Institute on Union Women (SIUW) from July 10-14, 2018, at Sonoma State University.

SIUW, a program of the United Association for Labor Education, brings together dynamic activists from more than 50 unions, worker centers, and community organizations. Participants develop and deepen organizing skills, train to become leaders in their unions, and grapple with big picture issues that the labor movement is facing. This is a rare opportunity to explore issues that affect women in the workplace and in their communities. SIUW creates lasting bonds; experienced leaders serve as mentors and role models, and younger leaders provide fresh perspectives and inspiration.
