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.

I.W.W. organizer Frank Little was in Butte, Montana, in the summer of 1917, organizing for the OBU after the disastrous Granite Mountain - Speculator Mine fire that killed 168 miners earlier that year. Early in the morning of August First, agents of the Copper Trust forced their way into his rooming house, dragged him out, and lynched him from a railroad trestle. He's buried in a Butte cemetery.
Fellow Workers will meet at Stodden Park in Butte (directions below) at noon on August 2nd for a potluck lunch and to get acquainted or re-acquainted, maybe have a brief organizing meeting; and maybe, if we're so inclined and anyone brings instruments, some music.
Then, after the potluck we'll convoy a mile or so down to the cemetery where FW Little is buried, have a brief ceremony, and hopefully some inspiring soapbox speeches and more music; and if necessary, do a little tidying up around FW Little's gravesite.
All this will be pretty informal, without a formal program or a rigid time schedule.
Remember, this will be a potluck, so bring something to eat, and enough extra to share !

Workers at Tom Cat Bakery sharpened their resistance against company attacks this summer with a solidarity BBQ in front of the Queens-based factory. Tom Cat's private equity owners, Ancor and Merit Capital, are seeking devastating health care cuts and other takeaways from workers in contract negotiations with the Bakery Union. Dual-card IWW members are leading a struggle to build long-term power and secure a good contract, after beating back a de-certification attempt from a mob-dominated union earlier this year.
“These out-of-town investors already have their mansions, while we barely can support our families. The cuts they're demanding are impossible and we're united against them,” said Marino Aquino, a night-shift packer at Tom Cat and a member of the IWW. “Our unity is our strength and we will keep the pressure on until justice prevails.”

The IWW Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee opposes all forms and methods of exploitation that the ruling class use to disempower and disenfranchise working people. IWOC stands in solidarity with those individuals that are released from prison only to find that they are effectively barred from obtaining employment due to the question “Have you ever been convicted of a felony?”, which is found on most job applications.
The IWW Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee recognizes that the felony question does not serve the interests of working people, nor does the question improve or fix the work, social, and economic conditions that plague our society. Therefore, IWOC opposes the employers’ practice of using the generalized felony question on job applications.
