About Us

UCS publishes and distributes Steward Update newsletter, labor graphics and books and other materials that help progressive union leaders rally their members and build their unions. More than 2,000 forward-looking unions across the U.S. and Canada use one or more of our highly praised services every month.

UCS was founded in 1981 by David Prosten.  In 2014 he gifted UCS to the Worker Institute at Cornell University’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations, so that his work could go forward while at the same time supporting and complementing the work of the much-respected Institute.
