Tracking Worker Militancy with the Labor Action Tracker

High-profile strikes and protests have recently garnered national attention. Yet, are worker actions increasing? If so, what demands are being made, and how can we understand their effectiveness? In 2021, researchers at Cornell's School of Industrial Labor Relations sought to provide the answers to these questions through the Labor Action Tracker. The Labor Action Tracker can be used as a comprehensive database of strike and labor protest activity across the United States to better inform and support labor movement activists, policymakers, and scholars about the state of US labor actions today. Please join the Center for Applied Research on Work in conversation with the Labor Action Tracker project leads and special guest Daniel Perez, State Economic Analyst at the Economic Policy Institute, as they discuss the genesis of the tool, how to use it, how it compares to other labor action trackers around the world, and what they see in the data.
