About us

The IWW is a member-run union for all workers, a union dedicated to organizing on the job and in our communities. IWW members are organizing to win better conditions today and build a world with economic democracy tomorrow. We want our workplaces run for the benefit of workers and communities rather than for a handful of bosses.


We organize industrially

We organize all workers producing the same goods or providing the same services into one union, rather than dividing workers by skill or trade, so we can pool our strength to win our demands together. 


Oppression exists.
We fight it. 

The IWW strongly opposes racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and any expression of disrespect and/or intolerance of size, gender identity, sexual identity/expression, (dis)ability, age, educational level, and cultural background.


Why join?

We share a duty to our co-workers to make things better. When we band together, we can improve our jobs and industries. The IWW has a vision and plan for workers' control of their own work, without bosses, making our industries and economy democratic.
