Welcome to LERC!
Since its inception in 1977, the Labor Education and Research Center at the University of Oregon has made the resources and expertise of the higher education system available to workers, unions, policy makers, and community partners throughout Oregon and the Pacific Northwest.
We are committed to improving the lives of working Oregonians and enhancing their ability to participate effectively in the workplace and community affairs. We believe that the presence of a strong union movement not only provides workers with vital protections but also is essential to maintaining a just and democratic society. We invite you to learn more.
