The Industrial Workers of the World is a rank-and-file-run, international union for all workers, dedicated to organizing both on and off the job, in our industries and our communities. Founded in 1905, we stand by the principles written in our Preamble, that the working class and the employing class have nothing in common, and that “an injury to one is an injury to all.” We are not affiliated with any political party. We recognize that unionism is not about government certification or employer recognition, but about rank-and-file workers coming together around common interests. The IWW organizes workers without limits. Low wage, high turnover, precarious, and non traditional workers and industries which have largely been ignored by mainstream unions have often been the focus of IWW organizing. Migrant and seasonal workers, domestic workers, sex workers, students, and unemployed workers have organized, and won, under the banner of the IWW. In 2011, the IWW established the Incarcerated Workers’ Organizing Committee (IWOC) which aims to move beyond providing solidarity and to actively organize workers behind bars for higher wages, safer conditions, necessary amenities, and a world without prisons. The IWW holds that there can be no end to injustice and want until the profit system itself is abolished. In striving to unite labor as a class in one big union the IWW also seeks to build the structure of a new and better social order within the shell of the old system which fails to provide for the needs of all.
