The UCLA Center for Labor Research and Education plays a unique role as a bridge between the university and the labor community in Southern California. This role has grown in the past few years with the dramatic changes that have overtaken the Southern California workforce and economy.

As part of the university, the Labor Center serves as a research and policy base for scholars and students interested in workplace issues. The Labor Center also brings UCLA into the community by providing workers with access to UCLA's vast resources and programs. An advisory committee comprised of about forty Southern California labor and community leaders (representing more than one million members in the public and private sectors) provides advice and support for the center.

The Labor Center has a vibrant outreach office just blocks from the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, dozens of major union headquarters and worker centers, and in the heart of a diverse immigrant community.
