Wikipedia:WikiProject Organized Labour

Welcome

Although there is a growing collection of Labour articles, there is a need to improve and widen the scope of Labour in general on Wikipedia. Currently there is limited information on specific trade union organizations, and their representation within individual business/government bodies.

This project would seek to gather articles together, and organize efforts.

  1. To expand, and globalize, articles related to Organized Labour.
  2. To create and expand articles for individual Labour Organizations.
  3. To establish fair and consistent representation of Labour in business, government, and organizational articles.
