About the DC IWW
The IWW is a worker-led union dedicated to direct action, workplace democracy, and industrial unionism.
IWW members are organizing to win better conditions today and to build a better world tomorrow.
Since re-chartering the DC branch in 2012, we have helped organize workers in various industries in DC, southern Maryland, and northern Virginia.
Support low wage workers in DC through our Solidarity Fund
The Solidarity Fund is a safety net for low wage workers. Your contribution will help ensure that workers we're helping to organize can make their rent, pay their utility bills, or take care of other necessary expenses. With your help, we can continue our mission to organize marginalized and exploited workers in the DC metro area.
Why join the union?
The easiest way to improve our jobs and strengthen our communities is to join a union. That is why employers fight so hard to keep unions out. Workers with unions generally have higher pay, job security, better benefits, and fewer scheduling problems. Union workplaces are safer and have less harassment, discrimination, and favoritism. This is because a union gives workers the power to make workplace decisions.
