è il sito web ufficiale dei "Lavoratori Industriali del Mondo"(da
qui IWW). Qui troverai tutto ciò di cui hai bisogno per unirti
all'IWW ed iniziare ad organizzarti nel tuo luogo di lavoro per costruire
il Sindacato nella tua comunità. La maggior parte delle
informazioni che troverai trattano degli stati uniti e del Canada, ma
troverai anche collegamenti a sezioni di IWW in altre parti del mondo.
L'IWW è un Sindacato di attivisti per tutti i lavoratori, un
Sindacato dedicato all'organizzazione sui luoghi di lavoro, nelle nostre
industrie e nelle nostre comunità. I membri di IWW si organizzano
per conquistare le condizioni migliori oggi e costruire un mondo
economicamente democratico domani. Vogliamo che il nostro lavoro serva a
beneficio dei lavoratori ed a beneficio delle comunità piuttosto
che per una manciata di burocrati sindacali.
Il nostro nome significa che organizziamo industrialmente; organizziamo
tutti i lavoratori che producono le stesse merci o forniscono gli stessi
servizi in un unico Sindacato, piuttosto che i dividere i lavoratori per
abilità o mestiere, dunque possiamo dire che la chiarezza che la nostra
forza vincente è nell'unità dei lavoratori. l'IWW è
stato fondato nel 1905 e ha dato un significativo contributo alle lotte
operaie nel mondo e ha una orgogliosa tradizione di organizzazione senza
distinzioni di sesso, etnia o razza queste alcune delle linee guida che ci
hanno accompagnato in tutta la nostra storia.

Pro-Claimant Demo Gets Great Public Support in West Derby
By the Liverpool IWW
Members of Liverpool IWW joined around a dozen activists, including people from the benefits advice group Reclaim, outside West Derby job centre on Eaton Road this lunchtime. This was part of a national day of action in solidarity with Scottish Unemployed Workers Network activist Tony Cox. Tony was arrested on 29th January after Arbroath job centre management called police to stop him representing a vulnerable jobseeker. We protested to drive home the message that ‘advocacy is not a crime’, and aiming to build towards smashing sanctions against unemployed workers.

By X331980, The Sakuma Brothers Farms, Inc. berry boycott campaign spread to yet another grocery store in Bellingham, Wash. on Feb. 21. A large group of Wobs and friends picketed a Haggen Foods grocery store on behalf of the Familias Unidas por la Justicia farm workers union. This was the first of these boycott pickets organized by the Whatcom-Skagit IWW, and it drew a good crowd. A large, bright red “Boycott Berries” banner attracted attention from the busy street in front of the store. Other picketed on the busy street corner two blocks down. Some pickets held signs supporting the nationwide boycott of Driscoll’s berries and Häagen-Dazs ice cream, large purchasers of berries grown at Sakuma Farms in Burlington, Wash. Some signs urged drivers to “honk your support farm worker justice” and drivers did. Others leafleted customers entering the parking lot with information about the boycott.

Laval -- On the morning of Monday, February 16, 2015, the IWW Montreal, the Student Workers Union of the University of Quebec at Montreal, as well as several other citizens, took part in the disruption of a Canada Post distribution center in Laval, Quebec.
This action in solidarity with postal workers is set in a current context of struggles against austerity, and in the scope of the campaign for a social strike on May 1st 2015.
Today, many workers are directly confronted with the effects of budget cuts to health services, to municipal employees, to firemen and firewomen, to postal workers, to students, to workers in the private sector...
Yet, resistance is organizing itself everywhere. We will not let different governments (whether conservative or liberal) and the bosses impose their anti-social measures on us. The time of a minority enriching itself on the back of an impoverished majority is finished.

On January 7, 2015, two days before the end of her 6 month probationary period, THRWU member S. was terminated from her job as a Senior Harm Reduction Worker at Syme Woolner Neighbourhood and Family Centre.
S. was terminated immediately and without cause, which is reprehensible but legal in Ontario within a probationary period. During her 6 months-less-two-days at Syme Woolner, S. had advocated for better treatment of workers and against discrimination and disrespect of workers and service users. She was the third person to occupy her position in less than a year.
