The Industrial Workers of the World are active and growing across North America and around the world (we currently have branches in Europe and Australia). Most of our campaigns must be kept confidential in order to avoid reprisals by bosses. New campaigns are starting all the time, and organized workplaces sometimes, unfortunately, become disorganized. The following list of workplaces have organized with the IWW and gone public. We’ll do our best to keep this list up-to-date.

Where noted, the business listed is a worker cooperative that is associated with the IWW.
