Problems at Work? Don't Fight Alone!

Disgruntled workers, don't miss the class that will change your life.

Its the "Introduction to the Industrial Workers of the World".

This interactive workshop draws upon your experiences as a worker to
develop a unique perspective on how we go about solving our problems at
work and building our power as workers.

Learn about:
different forms of unionism ("Service Unionism" and "Solidarity Unionism")

strategies for fighting back on the job (Labor Law & "Direct Action")

methods for building our power as a class of workers worldwide
(Cross-Border Solidarity)

democratic and participatory traditions ("Rank and File Control")

and much more!

The 'Introduction class' promises to inspire you, to piss you off, and to
arm you to change the way your boss does business.

The "Introduction to the IWW" class is hosted by the SF Bay Area Branch of
the Industrial Workers of the World.

The Industrial Workers of the World is a democratic, self-organizing union
open to all workers. We organize on the job, in our industries, and in
our communities. As we gain better working conditions today, we are
building an economic democracy for tomorrow.
