The IWW Survey & Research Committee (part of the Organizing Department Board) has just launched our 2014 member survey. We hope you can take 5-10 minutes of your time to complete this survey, and to share it with as many of your fellow workers as possible. Paper copies are also available upon request. The survey can be found at: http://bit.ly/Yg2SwA
The information you share with us will be vital in moving forward with organizing efforts around the world. This year, we are especially focused on understanding where fellow workers are organizing, as well as past efforts and future goals. The more comprehensive this survey is (i.e. the more people who respond!) the better we will be able to plan strategically and provide necessary trainings and resources. If you have any questions, concerns, or feedback about the survey, or are otherwise interested in the work of the SRC, please contact us at email@example.com.
For the One Big Union,

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.
Jesteœmy Przemys³owymi Pracownikami Œwiata (Industrial Workers of the World), poniewa¿ organizujemy siê przemys³owo. 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.

By the Baltimore IWW
Baltimore Jimmy John’s worker and veteran James Hegler was fired on Sept. 5 in retaliation for organizing a union at his workplace and participating in concerted activity against low wages and appalling working conditions. On Sunday, Oct. 19, workers and supporters picketed outside the Pratt Street Jimmy John’s to demand both the reinstatement of James Hegler and an end to illegal retaliation against workers.
By firing James, Jimmy John’s management made it clear that they are willing to violate federal labor law in order to punish workers for organizing a union. By ignoring attempts to meet and discuss terms for his reinstatement, Jimmy John’s management hopes to break the organizing drive through intimidation and contempt for the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). Workers responded with a picket to show Jimmy John’s that this behavior will not be tolerated.

The Jimmy John's bosses are at it again. Despite previous warnings they continue to retaliate against our members for wanting dignity, respect, and more of the good things of life on the job.
Danny Dolch and Mike Gillett are attacking our members through retaliatory scheduling and through the firing of one of our members, fellow worker James Hegler.

On September 29th Insomnia Cookies fired union organizer Colin James for his union activity under the guise of company theft. Colin has been a model employee without a single write-up and has been organizing at Insomnia Cookies for over 6 months.
This is the same union busting tactic this company used late last year, firing union organizer Tommy Mendez in Nov. of 2013. (http://openmediaboston.org/content/another-worker-fired-insomnia-cookies-unionization-effort-boston-location-picketed-2784).
