The IWW is calling on all artists and graphic designers to come up with new designs for our Union Shop Cards that are issued to workers who decide to organize and affiliate with the IWW (IWW shops, Sole-Proprietors, and Co-ops).
When the IWW recognizes shops they may use the union label on their products and they are issued an IWW Union Shop Card to publicly display. Since the union is beginning to run low on previous, older Shop Cards, the General Executive Board and the General Secretary Treasurer decided it would be in good form to update the Shop Cards and get fresh designs.

Despite the corporate talk of "team" and "love," here's what working there was really like -- and why I had to quit
By Nick Rahaim, Salon.com
After years of organizing in secret, building bonds over beer and supporting co-workers when issues have arisen with management, team members at a Whole Foods Market in San Francisco disrupted the normal workday and demanded a $5 an hour pay increase last month. More than 20 employees beckoned store management to the floor and presented a petition signed by more than 50 of the store’s workers calling for more paid time off, better health and retirement benefits as well as steady, consistent schedules.

If you would like to send holiday greeting cards to IWW members in prison, please send a note to the IWW Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee (IWOC) Facebook page and they will provide you with addresses. If you let us know what state you live in, we can try to provide addresses of people in your state.
Please use a PO Box for the return address so that strangers and prison staff do not have your home address.
Please keep in mind that many of the people in prison are Muslim so non-religious greeting cards are probably best.
