The position requires teaching expertise using diverse methodologies and effectiveness in relating to a wide variety of worker organizations.

New addition to the LES Staff

We have expanded our capacity and expertise in teaching with the addition of Russell Raczkowski.

The University of Minnesota Labor Education Service is offering six courses on "nuts & bolts" skills important to working people. The 2013-2014 schedule includes an online class, "Introduction to the Labor Movement."

Several union members read from the oral histories of Minnesota workers, an essay by labor leader Bayard Rustin and poems by Frances Harper and Langston Hughes.

The third cohort in the Minnesota Union Leadership Program graduated May 16 with a ceremony on the University's St. Paul campus.

The month-long course, taught solely online, allowed participants from across the region to learn about the labor movement at their leisure.
