What is the Labor Guild?

We are a membership organization of over 1800 individuals, organizations and institutions involved in all aspects of labor-management relations. The Guild promotes good order and justice in today’s workplace by inspiring, motivating and helping men and women to act with conscience, know-how and courage in labor-management relations.   Welcome!     Since 1945, the Guild has provided close to 50,000 students and working practitioners with

  • relevant practitioner-led  labor education, professional training and personal development through our school, workshops, forums and conferences
  • neutral, transparent third-party election services
  • a comfortable conference and meeting center
  • useful, engaging peer networking and excellent leadership opportunities
  • our Cushing-Gavin Awards that’s honored four exceptional professionals from our regional labor relations community each year since 1967.

The Guild values the collective bargaining process as an essential engine driving economic and social justice in a vibrant democracy.  Training, supporting, connecting and celebrating all the active participants in that process is at the heart of our mission and legacy. Join Us! Invest in YOU!  Take a class or workshop!  Check out our upcoming events and programs!
