Labor Party (US)
Formed in 1995 by the United Mine Workers, the Longshoremen, American Federation of Government Employees, California Nurses Association and hundreds of other labor unions. This organization allied itself with the Green Party of Wyoming in 1998 to field its first candidates for local and federal offices. It has not run candidates since (and never any outside of Wyoming), and the future of the party remains uncertain, particularly after the death of Tony Mazzocchi , the founding national organizer. All of the founding unions continue to actively support Democratic Party candidates.
- U.S. Labor Party - for the mid-1970s party run by Lyndon LaRouche which has no connections with the current Labor Party.
