Pacific NW unions: Take part in Labor Archives survey

SEATTLE (Sept. 5, 2019) — The Labor Archives of Washington (LAW) invites union locals, labor-affiliated organizations, and related civil rights and social justice organizations within the Pacific Northwest to participate in the PNW Labor Organization Records Survey.

An ongoing project, this survey is collecting information about the historical records created and kept by your organization and its members. Your participation will help give the LAW broader knowledge about where records documenting labor history in the region are located, enable it to gauge where its services may be needed to help organizations with records management issues and preservation of these records, and make valuable connections with members of the Pacific Northwest labor community.

You can complete the survey online or request a paper form, phone consultation, or have an LAW archivist visit your office by contacting Crystal Rodgers, Labor Archivist for Processing, at rodgercr@uw.edu or 206-685-6903.

LAW thanks all of the unions and organizations that participated in its 2018 Washington State Labor Records Survey. This year, the survey’s geographic scope has been expanded to include organizations from the entire Pacific Northwest region, so please share this request to participate in the survey with related organizations in other states.

Your union organization is making history every day, and LAW wants to ensure that these essential contributions to the labor movement and efforts towards social justice are preserved for future generations.
