Workday Minnesota is a project of the Labor Education Service (LES) at the University of Minnesota. LES is the only educational program in the state specifically focused on the needs of Minnesota workers and their organizations. The mission of the Labor Education Service is to equip workers, union officials and labor organizations with the knowledge-based tools to protect and advance their rights and responsibilities in a changing global socio-economic environment. LES does this through teaching and media services.
Workers are organizing through unions and other organizations to improve their lives. Union representation provides a voice on the job and the opportunity to improve wages, benefits and working conditions.
