Ypsilanti Industrial Workers of the World

 

Be the first to review

This is the Ypsilanti branch of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW). Members of the IWW are also known as Wobblies.

In 1905, The Industrial Workers of The World was founded in the tumultuous turn-of-the-century Chicago. Years latter it took the 250ish miles journey to the college town of Ypsilanti, MI, and the surrounding areas.

Since its founding, our branch has done its best to organize workers from the service industry to the factories and, in conjunction with other local groups like our GDC, have made strides to organizing tenants and fight landlords. Currently, we are pressing hard to form and expand an industry union called the Service Workers of the Ann Arbor Area (SIWA3) and looking into the possibilities of worker-ownership and donuts.
