"Labor Notes" is a publication of the Labor Education and Research Project, a Detroit-based publication reporting on a wide range of activity among rank-and-file union members. The publication is well-known for writing about opposition to joint labor-management programs, concessions, partnership agreements, resisting sexual harassment, and the fight for a shorter work week.

Part 1 of this collection consists primarily of various printed materials documenting dissident autoworker and steelworker movements in the 1970s and 1980s.

Part 2 consists of research materials assembled by "Labor Notes" for use in their magazines and other publications. The topics covered include both national and international labor issues, and include information on the automotive industry, various labor strikes, contract negotiations, concessions, team concept and joint labor-management programs, sexual harassment, and more. Also included are records from various conferences and workshops prepared by the "Labor Notes" staff.
