  • Informed workers are empowered workers.

    LaborLab is a nonprofit advocacy group dedicated to protecting and promoting the right to unionize by educating workers about their labor rights.

    We believe that in order for workers to use their rights, they first need to know what those rights are. Too many don’t. In fact, a large majority of workers don't know about their legal right to build power in the workplace through unions and protected concerted activities. LaborLab fills an important informational vacuum for workers regarding the right to unionize, with a special emphasis placed on Sections 7 and 8 of the National Labor Relation Act (NLRA).

    What we do

    We empower American workers to start, join, and support unions by

    • informing workers about their legal and constitutional rights,
    • providing information on starting a union,
    • and connecting empowered workers with union organizers.
