New Labor Forum is a national labor journal from the Murphy Institute and the City University of New York. Published three times a year, New Labor Forum provides a place for labor and its allies to test and debate new ideas. Issues we explore include (but are not limited to): the global economy’s impact on work and labor; new union organizing and political strategies; labor’s new constituencies and their relationship to organized labor’s traditional institutions; internal union reform and new structural models for the labor movement; alternative economic and social policies; and the role of culture in a new, revitalized labor movement. Our core constituency consists of scholars, journalists, labor leaders and activists as well as community-based activists concerned with the “labor question” broadly conceived. Our readers’ areas of interest cover the entire range of the humanities and social sciences.
Read endorsements from Cornel West, Howard Zinn, Noam Chomsky, and others.
