Centre for Labour and Trade Union Studies


The Centre for Labour and Trade Union Studies was established in 1989 by the University in conjunction with the New Zealand Council of Trade Unions (CTU) and the Trade Union Education Authority (TUEA), which has since been abolished.

The Centre is based in the Department of Societies and Cultures. In addition to normal academic teaching and research, the Centre’s staff also provide specific services to trade unions and the wider community. The Centre’s general goals are

  1. to develop Labour Studies as an interdisciplinary academic subject which examines its material from a labour perspective
  2. to foster within the University a climate and academic opportunities and services, both teaching and research, that recognise the distinctive character and needs of working class people and trade unions
  3. to work in partnership with the New Zealand Council of Trade Unions (CTU)
  4. to carry out research on behalf of trade unions and other bodies and organisations with objectives that are compatible with the Centre’s functions and orientations.
