Abstract

This study reviews recent innovations in three countries—Canada, Great Britain, and the U.S.—toward the provision of education and training for labor's professional staff, officials, and leaders. It highlights the overall approach and several of the initiatives adopted in each country, and then discusses some opportunities and barriers toward the development of this important facet of labor education. It complements recent discussions about the forms and purposes of labor education, in general, and current debates about the revitalization of the labor movement. The study concludes with a call for more systematic discussion of these issues and further analysis of different approaches.
