The Undergraduate Journal on Work, Labor and Social Movements is a project of the Labor Extension Programs at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, Boston, Dartmouth, and Lowell. The Labor Extension Program is a statewide effort providing training, education and and organizational development assistance to workers, their unions, and other workers’ organizations. The extension programs work in close partnership with the academic labor programs on each campus, enriching and supporting one another through service learning, internships, and connections to unions and community organizations.
