Cz³onkowie IWW organizuj¹ siê, aby wywalczyæ lepsze warunki ju¿ dziœ, ale te¿ by stworzyæ w przysz³oœci œwiat oparty na demokratycznej gospodarce. Chcemy aby owoce naszej pracy s³u¿y³y samym pracownikom i spo³ecznoœciom, a nie garstce szefów i w³adzom.

Oznacza to organizowanie siê wszystkich pracowników wytwarzaj¹cych te same dobra, lub us³ugê w jeden zwi¹zek, a nie dzielenie ich ze wzglêdu na kwalifikacje lub fach, w ten sposób mo¿emy skupiæ swe si³y i wywalczyæ nasze cele. Pocz¹wszy od za³o¿enia w 1905 IWW wnios³o znacz¹cy wk³ad do walk klasowych na ca³ym œwiecie i zdoby³o chlubn¹ tradycjê organizowania siê w poprzek p³ciowych, etnicznych i rasowych podzia³ów na d³ugo przed tym, kiedy sta³o siê to powszechne.

From the Boston IWW
Four workers at Insomnia Cookies' Cambridge store went on strike on August 19, protesting poverty pay and wretched working conditions, and demanding $15/hr, health benefits and a union at their workplace. The company illegally fired all four. For the next six months strikers, IWW members, allies, and student organizations at both Harvard and Boston University held pickets, marches, rallies, forums, phone blitzes, and organized boycotts, while workers continued organizing at both the Cambridge and Boston locations. The union also pursued legal charges through the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

New records obtained by the Defending Dissent Foundation prove that the United States Army used a multi-agency spy network to gather intelligence on nonviolent, antiwar protesters and to disseminate their findings to both the FBI and local police departments.
Activists filed a lawsuit against Thomas Rudd and John Towery — Panagacos v. Towery — in 2007, alleging that the U.S. Army had directed operatives to infiltrate and collect information about the activist movement in the Washington area.
According to the newly released documents, the U.S. Army paid Towery, a Criminal Information and Systems Officer, to spy on the antiwar group Port Militarization Resistance (PMR), as well as the Students for a Democratic Society, the Industrial Workers of the World, and Iraq Veterans Against the War.

The IWW’s Organizer Training 101 (OT101) is fundamentally different from any of the union trainings I’ve ever participated in with my business union. In 2010, I went to the United Food and Commercial Workers’ (UFCW) Prairies Youth Activist Retreat. It was five days long and held in a smaller vacation town in Manitoba. We spent the first two days learning the UFCW version of labor history and why we needed to vote for the New Democratic Party (NDP). We had a provincial NDP functionary (the Minister of Justice) come and speak to us about “our” issues. Incidentally, he side-stepped my question about why the NDP cancelled the university tuition freeze. We were told that, because of elections in Manitoba and Saskatchewan, we might be expected to act as volunteers for the NDP’s electoral campaigns and that the skills we learned were going to be put into that project.
