About LAW/Advisory Committee

No region has a more dramatic and consequential labor history than the Pacific Northwest. The Labor Archives of Washington (LAW) was founded in 2010 to preserve and make accessible the records of working people and their unions, documenting the local, national, and international dimensions of the labor movement in this region.

The Labor Archives is a collaborative project of the Harry Bridges Center for Labor Studies and the University of Washington Libraries. Funding for the Archives comes largely from the labor movement. The contributions of dozens of unions and hundreds of individuals make this possible (see Founders Circle information).
