W. Va. Labor History Week

During the 2010 Regular Session, the Legislature passed a resolution designating the week of Labor Day (Sept 6-11) as West Virginia Labor History Week. The purpose of this week is to give students and the public the opportunity to learn about labor history, collective bargaining, labor management relations, and the contributions that workers have made to society and the workplace. The WVLC Reference Library is developing a special Research Guide to support the observance.
