Union Communication Services (UCS), will close down at the end of August, reports the Worker Institute at Cornell University’s ILR School, which has operated the publisher since taking it over from founder David Prosten five years ago. UCS, originally based out of Annapolis, published Steward Update and other union and work-related books, and has been the primary source of Union City’s popular Today’s Labor History feature, which will continue in UC. “We are confident, however, that other progressive labor organizations will step in to provide the type of crucial information for workers and shop floor activists that Steward Update supplied,” said the Worker Institute. Now through August 15, 2019, while supplies last, receive 70% off of all stock in the UCS catalog when you enter the promo code SALE at checkout.
