Industrial Workers of the World (IWW / The Wobblies)


A labor union representing nearly 9000 workers across North America. Established in 1905, the IWW is known for its high standards of democracy, transparency, multinationalism, and active use of the right to strike.

The IWW is a general union that is open to workers from all industries and companies, rather than just one organization or particular sector.

The IWW promotes the creation of "One Big Union" and contends that all workers should be united as a social class to supplant capitalism and wage labor with industrial democracy.
