Rochester Labor History eMap

The first edition of the Labor News, “official publication of the AFL unions of Monroe County,” was published at this address on December 14, 1945 under the direction of editor Rodney Fisher and Central Trades and Labor Council president Anthony Capone. This location was also the headquarters of Typographical Union #15, Rochester’s first union, organized in 1853. The Labor News was not Rochester’s first labor paper: the first, published in 1882, was the International Laborers Advocate. A weekly labor journal was established in 1901 and, in 1913, the Council published the Labor Herald. The Labor News continues to be published from their current office on Humboldt Street.
