First released in the fall of 1997, New Labor Forum is a national labor journal owned, edited, and published by the Joseph S. Murphy Institute for Worker Education and Labor Studies, part of the City University of New York School of Professional Studies.
Published three times a year, New Labor Forum provides a place for labor and its allies to test new ideas and debate old ones. 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.
New Labor Forum‘s core constituency consists of leaders and activists in organized labor, as well as academics and activists whose work is linked to the causes championed by, and of interest to, working adults and their communities. The readers’ broad areas of interest cover the entire range of the humanities and social sciences.
