The United States Labor Party is a social democratic political party advocating workers' interests.
This organization allied itself with the Green Party of Wyoming in 1998 to field its first candidates for local and federal offices.

 Socialist Organizer: The Labor Party
A new party must have a distinct platform, a platform which may vary in details as circumstances vary and as the party itself develops, but still one upon which the party, for the time being, is agreed.
The Knights of Labor are the first national organization created by the American working class as a whole- whatever their origin and history, whatever their shortcomings and little absurdities, whatever their platform and their constitution, here they are, the work of practically the whole class of American wage-workers.
Whether the Knights of Labor will then retain their present name or not makes no difference, but to an outsider it appears evident that here is the raw material out of which the future of the American working-class movement, and along with it, the future of American society at large, has to be shaped.

 Labor Party
The Labor Party alone has a program and an organizing approach that speaks directly to the problem: systematic corporate greed.
Labor Party organizing focuses the attention of working people both on the ills of corporate greed, and on the rights and benefits that should belong to all - just health care, free higher education and genuine worker rights.
As a Labor Party we can develop campaigns on issues that point out the failure of the two major parties and their corporate backers.

 Communism Research Wiki: Labor Militant   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Labor Militant was always union-oriented, focusing on local activism in order to attract followers.
During the 1990s, Labor Militant was very active in the campaign to build a Labor Party in America - that is, a social-democratic political organization dominated by union members and free of the Democratic Party's corporate influence.
During the campaign in support of the Labor Party, some of Labor Militant's members grew dissatisfied with the Labor Party Advocates' minimal militancy and refusal to definitively separate from the Democrats.

The Natural Law Party was a New Age entity founded and run by followers of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi (the founder of the TM movement -- a movement that some have labeled as a cult).
The party ran nuclear physicist John Hagelin as the NLP Presidential nominee in 1992 (ballot status in 32 stares - 39,000 votes - 0.04%), 1996 (ballot status in 44 states - 7th place - 110,000 votes - 0.1%) and 2000 (ballot status in 39 stares - 7th place - 83,000 votes - 0.08%).
Their agenda is much in the style of the Western European socialist and labor movement -- and somewhat similar to that of the late-1990s formed Labor Party (but the NP has more of a controlled growth outlook on environmental issues).

 SOCIALIST LABOR PARTY OF AMERICA (1876-1930) history
Apamphlet summarizing this gathering was subsequently published entitled Socialistic Labor Party: Platform, Constitution, and Resolutions Adopted at the National Congress of the Workingmen's Party of the United States Held at Newark, New Jersey, December 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 1877: Together with a Condensed Report of the Convention Proceedings.
The party press was similarly split, the English language organ The Workmen's Advocate and the German Der Sozialist favoring electoral politics over trade union activity, while the New Yorker Volkszeitung, edited at this time by Alexander Jonas and Sergei Schevitsch, staunchly advocated a program almost exclusively concentrating upon trade union organization.
The Socialist Trade and Labor Alliance (STandLA) was established as the vehicle for this movement -- a set of "dual" trade unions in practical opposition to the established American Federation of Labor unions.

The first political party in Canada claiming to be socialist was the Socialist Labor Party, an offshoot of the Socialist Labor Party of America.
The Canadian SLP was formed in 1896 and was thoroughly reformist, as was a breakaway United Socialist Labor Party of British Columbia, founded in 1899.
The Socialist Party of British Columbia was less enthusiastic, however, as it had increased in size and influence; it also had three of its members elected to the British Columbia Legislature.

 On The Labor Party Question In America   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
However, if the creation of a “Labor Party” would prevent, in a certain period, the large success of Communism, our elementary duty must be not to proclaim the progressiveness of the “Labor Party”, but its insufficiency, ambiguity, and limitations, and its historical role as a hindrance to the proletarian revolution.
It is evident that the possibility of participating in and of utilizing a “Labor Party” movement would be greater in the period of its inception, that is, in the period when the part is not a party but an amorphic politic mass movement.
To consider a “Labor Party” as an integrated series of united fronts signifies a misunderstanding of the notions, both of united fronts and of the party.

After the break from the IWW some in the SLP, and many supporters who were not party members, argued against De Leoifs insistence that political action and the ballot was of vital importance in the struggle for emancipation.

 Political Economy: A Communist Critique of the Wage System.  A Progressive Labor Party Pamphlet
Therefore the wage paid to us for our labor power (based on the exchange value of our labor power) is lower than the total price of the commodities we produce (based on the exchange value of the commodities, which in turn is based on the total time we spend laboring for the capitalist each day).
The owner of money buys labor power at its value, which is determined, like the value of every other commodity, by the socially necessary labor time requisite in its production (that is to say, the cost of maintaining the worker and family).
These contradictions lead to explosions, cataclysms, crises, in which by momentous suspension of labor and annihilation of a great portion of capital the latter is violently reduced to the point where it can go on.....Yet these regularly recurring catastrophes lead to their repetition on a higher scale, and finally its violent overthrow.

The recalled National Committee refused to recognize the legitimacy of Section New York's action and a party crisis erupted; two competing "7th National Congresses" were held in October of 1889 as a result.
This was the result of a successful injunction placed on the standing NEC against publishing that organ.
Since the injunction was placed upon the members of the NEC as individuals rather than upon the party itself, it was decided to stand aside as one and to be replaced by a new group of individuals.

This new union is characterized by an extraordinary influx of money, all of it to be used not only to reverse the labor movement's flagging fortunes, but also to change the political landscape in ways that are as radical as anything that occurred during Franklin Roosevelt's presidency.
The very title of his book has the resonance of a manifesto, "America Needs a Raise." Of course, what America needs to be is more productive and more competitive; class warfare is a scenario for self-destruction.
That means that those people whose work supports the government have a vested interest in seeing their union's preferred party as the one that should remain in power.
