Ten Reasons Why Unions Should Use LabourStart for Online Actions

  1. LabourStart is a pioneer in the use of the internet for unions. We have been around for over twenty years. We know what works and what doesn’t, and we can help you design your campaign.

  2. We are in and of the global labour movement, not an outside consulting firm. Our hundreds of volunteers have the experience, the knowledge and the contacts to help maximize the effect of your campaign.

  3. LabourStart can help you build campaigning capacity. Details about those who participate in your campaign can be provided to your union for use in future.

  4. Trans-union solidarity. You can help build campaigns by other unions. Your members who participate in your action will be asked if they want to be added to our mailing list. Those who say yes will then occasionally be called on to support other campaigns by other unions, building the global labour movement’s organizing capacity.

  5. LabourStart is a global organization with global reach. Most unions have mailing lists of (some of) their own members. Ours is global.

  6. LabourStart operates in over 30 languages. If you want to reach workers in their own languages LabourStart is the way to go. We provide translations at no cost.

  7. LabourStart won’t bury your members who participate in our online actions with irrelevant or offensive mailings. We do one thing and one thing only: campaign for workers’ rights.

  8. LabourStart has the largest global mailing list of trade unionists that there is.

  9. LabourStart only works with legitimate trade unions and a few well-respected workers rights NGOs.

  10. Everything we do we do at no cost to the unions we work with.
