Richmond IWW Meeting Tomorrow

The Richmond IWW will be holding a meeting at the Flying Brick Library tomorrow, September 8th, at 7pm. The Richmond IWW is hoping to soon get its official local status, with enough dues paying members. They have already been a part of starting the Richmond Transit Riders Union, who are hard at work building membership and working to improve our public transportation from the ground up! If you are a worker, please consider coming!

They hold their monthly meetings the first Wednesday of every month at the Flying Brick.

Founded in Chicago in 1905, the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) is open to all workers. Don’t let the “industrial” part fool you. Our members include teachers, social workers, retail workers, sex workers, construction workers, bartenders, and computer programmers. Only bosses are not allowed to join. You have a legal right to join a union and your membership is confidential. It is up to you whether you discuss the union with your co-workers. If you are currently unemployed, you can still join. We are a volunteer-driven union, and this means we, not union bosses, run the union. The IWW is not controlled by or affiliated with any political party or political movement. No money goes to politicians. Membership dues are used to maintain the union and assist organizing campaigns. As a result, monthly dues are low.
