Labor Working Group

NYC-DSA Labor Branch members on the Verizon picket line.

The DSA Labor Working Group creates community for DSAers active in the labor movement, whether as union members and stewards, union staff, workers center activists, union officers, labor journalists, union retirees, students in labor solidarity groups, labor-oriented intellectuals, or in any other kind of role in the movement!


Current projects include:

  • foster the formation of Labor Branches in more DSA locals
  • create nationwide networks of DSAers in specific unions
  • develop and distribute useful educational materials about how to be a socialist labor activist
  • create a nationwide union-solidarity network that can mobilize quickly to support workers’ struggles


DSA also publishes a blog on labor issues called Talking Union
