Labour Research

The first edition of Labour Research magazine was published in 1917. To celebrate the magazine's 100th birthday and to build for the future, LRD has launched the Strong Foundations appeal.

Funds raised will go towards the magazine's redesign, improving LRD's online presence and building maintenance.

Labour Research all issues

Labour Research is the UK monthly that keeps you right on top of what's happening in the unions - from how they're responding to the impact of government policy on unions and working people to union initiatives on recruitment and growth.

The magazine also provides regular updates on workers' legal rights and changes in employment law, as well as the essential information union reps need to monitor, and take effective action on, health and safety at work. And it gives the latest information on equality matters and European Union developments.
