1. Survey Introduction

The Labor Archives of Washington (LAW) invites all cultural heritage institutions in the Pacific Northwest with records related to labor history and working people to participate in the Pacific Northwest Repository Labor History Records Survey. For the purpose of this survey, labor history records includes that of organized labor, such as labor unions, labor leaders, rank and file members, and labor councils, as well as other dimensions of working people's history; the papers of labor scholars and historians; and records of interrelated civil rights and social justice organizations and activism. This information will give the LAW a broader knowledge about where records documenting labor history in the region are located, enabling us to compile a publicly accessible regional directory of labor records as well as integrate this information into the Society of American Archivists, Labor Archives Section’s Labor Archives of the United States and Canada: A Directory.

This survey will take approximately 30 minutes to 1 hour of your time. You can save your responses and return to the survey multiple times to complete (just be sure to use the same computer/device and web browser to do so). Only one completed survey per institution, please. 

This survey is now ongoing and can be completed at any time. Please contact Labor Archivist for Processing, Crystal Rodgers, at rodgercr@uw.edu or 206-685-6903 with any questions or concerns.
If you are responding for a labor union or labor organization in Washington State, there is a companion survey you can complete. 

Thank you so much for your time contributing to this important project!
