The program has been in existence since 1925, making it the oldest university-based labor education program in North America.

The School for Workers is the labor education department of the University of Wisconsin-Extension, Continuing Education, Outreach & E-Learning. Our mission is to educate workers and others about issues of concern in the workplace. Each year we offer hundreds of programs to thousands of union representatives, officers, members, and employer representatives.

While most of our programming activity occurs in Wisconsin and neighboring states, we frequently travel to states outside the region and to foreign countries.

Our classes and programs cover a wide variety of employment related subjects, in formats including one hour presentations, evening community classes, on-campus Madison institutes, customized on-site classes, and ongoing labor-management and union facilitation. Our faculty also conducts applied research and offers technical assistance services to our clients.
