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.
