The Industrial Workers of the World is a democratic, member-run, labour union whose mission is to organize the workplace, industries, and communities. We want to both improve our living conditions in the immediate, but also build a world without bosses - a world in which the production and distribution will be managed and organized by us, the workers.
We organize industrially and on the basis of One Big Union; meaning that we have members in all skills and trades and our doors are open to all fellow workers. Organizing industrially means that, unlike trade unions, we organize all workers on the job into one union rather than dividing ourselves by trade. This means greater collective bargaining power and strength to fight the bosses together.
Join us and find out how we can help you fight for better working conditions and build a truly democratic society.
