Minnesota Union Leadership Program

Minnesota Union Leadership Program (MULP) 2020-2021

The Labor Education Service is working on providing a safe and practical plan for this year's MULP program. Due to COVID-19, we are having to update and change our curriculum to fit the new normal.

Registration is not  open at this time. We will be in touch again over the coming months with more information as it becomes available.


The 2019-20 brochure (pdf) is here for the previous Cohort.


Through six in-depth sessions scheduled over nine months, participants study the labor movement (past, present, and future) while engaging in critical thinking about how workers succeed in building a more just and equitable society. Emerging and established union leaders build relationships and network with their fellow class members and others from the labor movement, learning from each other’s experiences and knowledge.

The Labor Education Service at the University of Minnesota coordinates and leads the training. Experienced and knowledgeable speakers from throughout the labor movement and its allied community are included as presenters and panel members.

The program begins with three days at Ruttger’s Bay Lake Lodge near Brainerd where participants build relationships and focus on engaging the first two sessions.
