The new model for training in the ATU offers opportunities to learn the skills needed to build a strong active worker movement as well as the fundamentals of member service.
Through our regional training seminars, we provide speakers and workshops which present a broad perspective of workers’ struggle for dignity and social justice.
In addition, legislative updates on state and national issues, labor law and workers rights and methods of effectively building and maintaining coalitions with other unions, riders, environmental, and social justice groups are regularly provided.

The National Labor College (NLC) is one of a kind, the only college in the United States with an exclusive mission to serve the educational needs of the labor movement. It is an activist institution made up of students, faculty and alumni who together form a learning community based on a common understanding of the world of work and the ecology of the labor movement. The College respects that its student body is made up of experienced, highly skilled working adults who have multiple commitments to family, job, union and community. In its academic programs, the NLC honors higher learning that takes place both inside and outside the collegiate community. Website
