Every year the online labour solidarity site Labour Start holds a contest for the best labour website of the year. This year's (2008 actually) has a short list of 12 contestants to choose from. Here's the story.

It's that time of year again – time for the Labour Website of the Year competition:
This is a competition that LabourStart has run every year since 1998.

As trade union use of the Internet grows, the competition grows as well.

This year, we asked our readers to nominate their favorite union websites. You nominated 170 sites – nearly twice as many as the year before.

We then asked our volunteer correspondents to vote for the best ones from that list, and we now have a short-list of 12 sites – from the USA, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Palestine, and Europe.

Today it's your turn to pick the best of those 12. Please go here to cast your vote:

Please check out the sites that you may never have visited before. There are some fantastic resources here including three sites that have already won the website of the year competition in the past.

Voting ends on 5 February 2009.

Please encourage your friends and co-workers to vote as well. (But remember, you can only vote once!)
And are the contestants. Please go to the highlighted site above to vote.
