|WIIU Puts Forward Organizing Philosopy|
By: IU News Staff
The Workers' International Industrial Union has formulated a plan for building the union and bringing workers together across the country and the world.
A Solidarity Group is made up of two or more workers in a state, or a city etc. These workers will be expected to coordinate their efforts in promoting industrial unionism to the working class. Once ten or more workers sign on in a city, town or locality a Local Recruiting Union (LRU) can be formed. Those who are not located in the area where the LRU was formed may remain part of the Solidarity Group until there are enough workers in his or her area to form a LRU.
The mission of the Solidarity Group:
Use every opportunity to spread the word to fellow workers about Socialist Industrial Unionism
Create a local website with contact information for their state or locality.
Coordinate efforts among members to attend protests, rallies, political meetings and distribute WIIU literature and recruit as many workers as possible to join the movement.
In effect, the Solidarity Group will function as organizers for the WIIU, until such time as the union is able to field paid organizers to build the union.
This is a logical starting point for the WIIU to start down the path to ending wage slavery. Once we have a Solidarity Group in each state we can begin the real task of organizing the working class.
