Who We Are


The Industrial Workers of the World recognizes that solidarity is key to labor struggles in one’s home community, country, region and the world.

The concentration of capitalist ownership in the hands of fewer and fewer owners strengthens their hand not only in contract negotiations but in how the world works.

For this reason, the Industrial Workers of the World formed the International Solidarity Commission to help the union build the worker-to-worker solidarity that can lead to effective action against the bosses of the world.
