New Union Party (NUP) (1974-2005)
The New Union Party was a smaller political party based in the United States. It lasted from 1974-2005, and is one of the longer lasting parties. Its original name was the New Unionists. Several of the members from the New Unionists were part of the Section Minneapolis of Social Labor Party of America or SLP. These members left the SLP because they thought it had become bureaucratic and authoritarian structurally, or corrupt as a whole. After 5 years in August of 1980 the New Unionists joined up with League for Socialist Reconstruction, forming the New Union Party.

New Union Party Views
The New Union party has many political views that correspond with the DeLeonist political series. It advocates for non violence and changes to social and militant revolution. The NUP was greatly devoted to non-violent protests and law-abiding ways to overthrow the capitalist economic system. In addition to these ideas, the NUP was directly involved in the rise of syndicalism and helped get syndicalism off the ground. The rise of syndicalism led to the creation of unions, and in the end furthered the democracy of America. In 2005 the NUP discontinued its newsletter and committed itself to the election of Jeff Miller for Senator of Minnesota. Their most recent campaign information provided in 2005 had drastically different views than DeLeonism or Marxism ever provided us with, and it is still unclear whether the NUP was in line with those beliefs or not.
