  • IWW – Solidarity with Swedish Workers

    Workers with colored smoke tubes and signs in Swedish and English.

     

    The IWW expresses its solidarity with SAC – Syndikalisterna, other grassroots unions, and Swedish workers.

    We note that the Swedish government, in collaboration with big business and mainstream trade unions are proposing legislation that would severely restrict the right of workers to take industrial action in defence of their interests.

    We consider this attack on Swedish workers as a form of class war more to be expected from authoritarian regimes than from a social democratic government and union bureaucracies who are in clear collaboration with the capitalist class.

    In particular it will be illegal for Swedish unions to engage in strikes or other forms of action, including handing out leaflets outside a workplace for any other purpose than not having a collective bargaining agreement with an employer. The only recourse for discrimination or illegal sackings will now be a flawed labour court system.

    It will be illegal to engage in a strike to get a collective bargaining agreement if a union is “known to not usually sign or hold” such an agreement. It will also be illegal to strike to get a collective bargaining agreement if there is already a collective bargaining agreement with another union – even if they have no members in the workplace or sector.

    These proposals will severely reduce the potential for independent solidarity unions to take industrial action of any kind.

    They also enable employers to create their own yellow unions or to incite unions organising the same workplaces into competition that suits the employer rather than the workers.

    These proposals contravene ILO conventions ratified by Sweden in the 1940s as well as European Convention articles on the right to free association and the right to union organisation.

    The IWW extends solidarity and applauds Swedish unions and workers who have taken to the streets in recent months in an effort to resist these reactionary proposals becoming law. Representatives from Danish and Norwegian unions have also campaigned at home as well as attending protests in Stockholm.

    In recent decades the struggle against the restriction of union rights has become central to the global class war and it must therefore always be waged internationally. The IWW stands with our Fellow Workers in struggle in Sweden and across the world.

  • La IWW se afilia con la Confederacion Internacional del Trabajo

    CHICAGO - En su referendo anual, la administración norteamericana de la IWW (Industrial Workers of the World / Trabajadores Industriales del Mundo) votó abrumadoramente a afiliarse a la recién formada Confederación Internacional del Trabajo (CIT). La CIT es una organización internacional que une a sindicatos revolucionarios en ocho paises de Europa, América Latina, y Norte América.

    La CIT se enfoque en desarrollar un modelo visible del sindicalismo revolucionario, una manera de formar sindicatos basados en la solidaridad y la acción directa, y que prefiguren un mundo liberado del capitalismo. Los sindicatos de la CIT ya están coordinando su actividad entre trabajadores de apps, como los de Deliveroo y Foodora, incluso con huelgas coordinadas contra Deliveroo en varios paises.

    La IWW aporta nuestra experiencia organizando en prisiones con el Comité Organizador de Trabajadores Encarcelados (Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee / IWOC). La CIT y sus secciones apoyaron a la huelga de encarcelados que ocurrió en los EEUU este año, para el cual IWOC jugó un rol importante. A traves de la CIT, la IWW ha empezado a contactar sindicatos de encarcelados en otros paises.

    Más aún que la práctica sindical diaria, la CIT da lugar a sus secciones a compartir experiencias de luchas masivas obreras. Este año, la Confederación Nacional del Trabajo (CNT - sección española de la CIT) jugó un rol importante en coordinar una Huelga General Feminista el 8 de Marzo, que la CNT y la CIT quieren tomar como ejemplo para 2019.

    El voto de la IWW a afiliarse con la CIT culmina varios años de colaboración entre estos sindicatos para dar esta Internacional a luz. Queremos continuar desarrollando nuestros proyectos mutuos y formando relaciones en otros partes del mundo. La IWW va a compartir su experiencia y aprender de la experiencia de otros - a inspirar y ser inspirada. Con las crises económicas, ecológicas, y políticas que el capitalismo nos trae e intensifica, hace falta un vibrante e internacionalista movimiento revolucionario ahora más que nunca.

    Viva la Internacional!

  • Note on affiliation to ICL

    CHICAGO—In its annual referendum, the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) North American Regional Administration voted overwhelmingly to officially join the recently formed International Confederation of Labor (ICL). The ICL is an international organization linking together revolutionary unions in eight different countries in Europe, Latin America, and North America.

    The focus of the ICL is building a visible model for revolutionary unionism, a way to build unions that are based on solidarity, direct action, and which prefigure a world which has shaken off capitalism. ICL unions have already begun to coordinate their activity among app-based workers, such as those working for Deliveroo and Foodora, leading to coordinated strikes against Deliveroo in multiple countries.

    The IWW brings to the table our growing experience organizing in prisons through the Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee (IWOC). The ICL and its member unions endorsed the U.S. #PrisonStrike earlier this year, which was co-led by IWOC. Through the ICL, the IWW has begun to make contact with unions of prisoners in other countries.
