Regional Labor Records Survey

Labor and Labor-Related Organizations, and Cultural Institutions:

Participate in the Labor Archives of Washington’s Regional Records Survey


The Labor Archives of Washington (LAW) extends a warm invitation to all labor and labor-related organizations across the Pacific Northwest. If you possess records that are linked to labor history, civil rights, or social justice organizations and activism, we encourage your participation in the Pacific Northwest Labor Records Survey.

For Labor Unions and Labor-Related Organizations

Participating in this survey will provide LAW with essential insights into the distribution of records within the region. By sharing this information, you help us:

    • Understand the various formats these records take, both existing and ongoing.
    • Gain insight into your storage conditions, staffing, and other factors related to your records.

      For Archives, Libraries, and Cultural Institutions

      If you represent an archive, library, or cultural institution, your participation is equally valuable. Sharing information about the labor history records within your collections allows us to:

        • Create a comprehensive regional directory of labor historical records.
        • Integrate this data into the Society of American Archivists, Labor Archives Section’s “Labor Archives of the United States and Canada: A Directory.”

        Participate in the PNW Repository Survey
