The U.P. School of Labor and Industrial Relations (SOLAIR) traces its roots to the Labor Education Center (LEC). Founded in 1954, the Center was established to assist the fledgling labor movement at that time by providing training on the various aspects of trade union organizing and administration. The Center boasted of a highly capable training and professional staff of labor lawyers and trainers, most of whom were recruited from the ranks of the trade union movement.

After only four years of operation, the Center expanded its services to countries in Asia to fill in the gap in labor education among Asian trade unions. The Center was subsequently renamed the Asian Labor Education Center in 1958 and became the leading regional training institution for Asian trade union leaders.

In 1975, the institution started to offer graduate studies in addition to its original extension and research activities. This necessitated a change in the name of the institution- from ALEC to the Institute of Industrial Relations (IIR). In 1988, the Board of Regents approved the change of name of the unit from IIR to the School of Labor and International Relations (SOLAIR) so as "to adequately reflect the functions and the areas of concern of the unit, and in keeping with nomenclature of counterpart industrial relations schools in the international academic community."

The master's program in industrial relations aims to retain qualified students and staff members of unions, management, government agencies and educational institutions for a professional career in labor relations and human resources development.
