Labour history

Finnish Labor Archive

The Finnish Labour Archive, Työväen Arkisto, is Finland’s oldest social movement archive that preserves and makes available the records of social-democratic political organisations, the trade union movement and private individuals involved in the labour movement. The Commission of Finnish Labour Tradition gathers oral history by interviews and by organizing collections of thematic memoirs and autobiographies. The Labour Archive in Finland deposited a photo collection from the history of the archive, including personal stories.
