The International Labor Communications Association (ILCA) is a professional organization for non-profit organization which provides resources, expertise and networking opportunities for labor communicators.

The ILCA was founded in 1955 as the International Labor Press Association. Its formation was brought about by the merger of the Congress of Industrial Organizations. The body was established as a means of coordinating the message of the new organization in labor newsletters, newspapers and magazines throughout the labor movements. It changed its name to ILCA in 1985.

The ILCA is not a competitor to the Labor Studies Journal. 27:4 (Winter 2003).
