LaborNet is a San Francisco-based "democratic communications" network for the labour movement. It was founded in 1991.

According to LaborNet's website, its "founders believe that the new communication technology must be put to use to revitalize and rebuild the labor movement. To that end we established the first regular Labor News web page in the United States." [1]

Currently, the initiative has been expanded, with "LaborNets" being also set up in other places like Canada, United Kingdom, Austria, Germany, Japan and Korea. LaborNet says it also works to defend the internet from censorship and the privatization of information "that would limit and destroy our rights to communicate and build world unionism."
