"LEARN Lessons" is a collection of mini-lectures delivered by various experts on topics of importance to unions, labor relations professionals, health and safety advocates, and others working in the field of work and employment.

Topics range from broad social questions such as income inequality and race to more specific issues like how to file an OPRA request, or best practices during Weingarten meetings. We hope that you will find these video lectures helpful in your daily work.
