The Pacific Northwest Labor History Association (PNLHA) is a non-profit association dedicated to preserving the history and heritage of workers in the Pacific Northwest. It considers the “Pacific Northwest” to be British Columbia, Oregon and Washington.
Members of the PNLHA include trade unionists, students, academics, and others who share an interest in the history and heritage of workers in the pacific northwest region. The PNLHA believes the labor movement must know where it’s been to know where it’s going. It depends exclusively on memberships to sustain its activities.
