It is the historic mission of the working class to do away with capitalism. The army of production must be organised, not only for everyday struggle with capitalists, but also to carry on production when capitalism shall have been overthrown. By organising industrially we are forming the structure of the new society within the shell of the old.

All members of the working class can join, except cops, prison guards, and bosses. Historically, the police have been used to repress insurgent labor organizing and their role has been to protect capital and the property of the bosses at the expense of workers. As a union, we organize incarcerated workers and recognize the inherent violence of the prison industrial complex. For that reason, we do not allow prison guards to join. Lastly, as the introduction to our preamble states, “The working class and the employing class have nothing in common,” we do not allow membership for those who have the ability to hire and fire. You can be a dual-carder and be a member of more than one union. If you are currently in a job that has representation by a union, you can also join the IWW. Dual carders are often some of the most active members of their union, pushing them from below for better contracts and more democratic representation. You don’t need a contract or election to be a union. A union is two or more workers, in a workplace, organizing for a set of common issues. Historically, contracts limit the ability for workers to achieve their gains which must be renegotiated only within a set timeframe. Organizing without a contract can allow you to make gains regardless of the conditions that can limit you in a contract. However, we also organize workers through contract elections if that is what they choose. We are a completely democratic union. We organize under the principle of “solidarity unionism,” meaning that members on the shop floor determine what course of action to take to defend their rights and secure gains. Unlike business unionism which tends to work alongside bosses to protect both management and workers, the IWW believes that protecting the employing class, in any fashion, will harm the working class. We do not believe in class collaboration with the bosses.
We never endorse politicians. Period. Power comes from the bottom-up.

The capitalist class has tried many time to kill both the IWW and unions as a whole. From attempts to make organizing illegal to company unions, they have yet to learn regardless of rotten laws or silly tricks the real power of organizing comes from the people and they can not kill that!

You don’t have to have read all of Das Kapital to understand how capitalism works. Everyone who works for wages understands how their boss minimizes safety concerns and reduces their salaries to keep the money for themselves.

Across the world workers were struck by a horrific and horrible pandemic perpetrated by the needs of capitalism. The capitalist need you to make their wealth and either don't care about your wellbeing or actively want you to be put in harms way. We as an organization believe their is a better way, a way to make sure everyone is safe and secure in an economy where finally everyone would have enough.

There is power in a factory, power in the land Power in the hand of the worker But it all amounts to nothing If together we don't stand There is power in a Union ~ This sticker from 1916 says it true, solidarity takes everyone standing together!
