The Labor Movement: Essential to Democracy

When unions are strong, all workers are better off. Yet, for too long we have devalued the role of labor in our economy and in our country. It is time to stand up and fight back!

At the Sanders Institute Gathering, labor leaders from around the country came together to talk about the path forward. They talked about specific goals for individual unions like the Postal Workers Union advocating for a postal bank and vote-by-mail, successes that unions like NNU have had in educating their members and encouraging activism, and the path forward for our country as a whole.
