Labor for Peace was a voluntary organization of trade union leaders who joined together in 1972 to bring an end to the war in Vietnam. 985 delegates from 32 states and the District of Columbia attended the founding conference in St. Louis, Missouri, on June 23-24, 1972. The delegates represented 35 international unions and issued a statement of policy that outlined their perspective of the effects of the war on America. They demanded immediate withdrawal from Vietnam and a peace-oriented economy. The records include correspondence, memos, reports, a policy statement, and newspaper clippings.
