Free Online Courses from National Labor College
The National Labor College has launched a new, cutting-edge union education tool called the Open Learning Course (OLC) program. The OLC is offered free and is a self-directed, web-based learning activity that offers opportunities for union members, leaders, activists and staff to study new topics and improve their understanding of the labor movement. Courses usually take about an hour and provide informative overviews of topics important to unionists. Take an OLC course on collective bargaining, Taft-Hartley funds, labor and the arts or another subject of interest to you. Find out more on the NLC OLC webpage. The course listing will be updated periodically, so keep checking back.
