We are recognized as the premier Labor Talk Radio program.

Through a mix of local and national interviews, we discuss critical issues facing our listeners. The Union Edge reaches across the table and political aisle to find common ground, and speaks to labor, progressives, and moderates. The discussion is often lively but it is always respectful. We are America’s largest nationally-syndicated labor talk show, broadcast live from our PIttsburgh studio noon-3pm ET. Click here to find a station near you!
