Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The collection is comprised of serial issues, pamphlets, leaflets, and circulated documents issued by Russian independent trade unions, relating to the labor movement in the Soviet Union and post-Soviet Russia.
In the Soviet Union, labor unions were generally guided by Communist party policy, with the All-Union Central Council of Trade Unions (VTsSPS) in the forefront. Labor unions incorporated a majority of the labor force, as trade union membership was mandatory. The unions distributed and administered a wide range of social services to workers.
