IWW Member Isn't Toying Around with Wagner Rights

Tue, 06 Nov 2012 19:07:48 +0000

  Grand Junction, CO- After months of organizing and radical action in the anti-worker state of Colorado, the hammer of injustice finally fell for one Industrial Worker of the World member.
  Josh Carmona, IWW member and anarchist agitator on the Western Slope, was terminated from Toys For the Fun of It, Tuesday, for organizing his workplace. Although the official explanation that he was losing customers because of his involvement at a Romney/Ryan rally weeks earlier; Josh believes that this is just a coverup for his boss' wobbliephobia.

  After a quick call to his delegate, John (4 Corners IWW), action was decided.

 

An unfair labor practice charge was filed with the National Labor Relations board.

An unemployment claim is being filed.

  This Saturday, Nov. 10th, 2012, a call-in action is planned for the anti-worker toy store.

  From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. MST please call or email complaints to the store letting them know what you think of worker reprisal and unfair labor practices.

I was told that I would have to get someone from inside come out a get

So I went to the other side, smiled at the people holding pictures of the mangled fetus and asked some people at a table about attending the "faith based event"  I was asked for a ticket and said I had none but really wanted to go, so they passed me through and told me to talk to some people about late registration.

Is "Change to Win" Enough?

Most media ink and bytes have been about the split. Important? Sure. But too little attention has been paid to the AFL-CIO's anti-war resolution.

How significant might such a stance be for a labor federation? In the aftermath of the American entry into World War I, just such an anti-war view provoked the systematic dismantling of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) in what came to be called the Palmer Raids. Union halls were ransacked throughout the country, and nearly two hundred IWW leaders were imprisoned for opposing the war and for "criminal syndicalism." (Yet the IWW has survived, and hasn't changed its views about war.)

So the AFL-CIO has taken a bit of a radical turn, at least in one dimension. The anti-war resolution is remarkable, if only because it is such a dramatic departure from the past history of the federation.

What remains to be assessed during the mainstream labor movement's current introspection?
