    Labour Website of the Year 2005 - LabourStart
    This year, among the top 10 websites we have four from Canada, two from the USA, and one each from South Africa, Australia, the United Kingdom, and Ireland. These ten websites come from unions representing a total of nearly 3,000,000 workers. The winning site this year received more votes than any other site ever received in one of our annual competitions.
    In 3rd place, with 404 votes, is Confined Space. Confined Space is the weblog of Jordan Barab from the USA and offers "news and commentary on workplace health & safety, labor and politics". This marks the first appearance of a weblog in the top ten of the labour website of the year competition.
