Labor Today

Labor Today Labor Today is the publication of the Labor United in the Class Struggle caucus.

In the 1970's a national rank and file caucus was built across the United States within the union movement among organized workers. It's name was Trade Unionists for Action and Democracy (TUAD). The TUAD national publication was known as Labor Today and was available at plant gates and union halls in the big manufacturing areas of this country. That changed when NAFTA came into existence, followed by other trade agreements and global schemes like the World Trade Agreement and the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade. Manufacturing left the U.S. and there was a tremendous loss of good paying union jobs. The service sector and fast food industries grew and low wage non-union workers replaced the higher paid union industrial workers. There was "a race to the bottom" in the USA. Soon there were more non-union workers than union ones and union membership declined to roughly 13% of the workforce. There was massive unemployment and underemployment. There was a massive economic crisis not only in the United States, but throughout the world. Action is needed to reverse this economic assault on workers. The Labor United in Class Struggle caucus was formed among activists, both union and non-union to build a movement in defense of all workers. We believe it is not enough to focus on the union movement alone. We believe in "organizing the unorganized". We seek to unite all workers into a single nationwide labor caucus to defend their rights. Our newspaper is Labor Today, uniting the tactics of the old with the new realities. JOIN US!

Mission: To unite all U.S. workers under one labor caucus, Labor United in Class Struggle, to build labor unity without regard to membership status in a labor organization. Labor Omnia Vincit!

Older workers can’t work from home and are at a higher risk for COVID-19

Key takeaways Nearly three-fourths of workers age 65 and older—or over 5 million older workers—are unable to telecommute. That means that these workers, who are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19 because of their age, could be putting themselves at risk to earn a paycheck. Policymak...

International Union of Painters and Allied Trades


In consultation with our local leaders, the General Executive Board has approved an international monthly dues freeze for our entire membership for the month of April. We believe that dues payments should not be an economic burden on our working families in this moment. The health and safety of our members and their families is our first concern.

The IUPAT is the best trained on workplace safety in our industry. Being union means we always look out for the safety of our fellow brothers and sisters. We’ve heard from many of our members concerned about the safety of continuing to work in this health crisis. Please stay tuned as we continue to moderate the situation on the ground.

Solidarity is more important than ever in this pandemic.
