The IWW, William Z. Foster, and revolutionary syndicalism

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How have past revolutionaries connected labor unions to the struggle against capitalism, and how can we do so today?  This discussion will explore the history of the famous and influential Industrial Workers of the World (the IWW), as well as other forgotten but equally important "syndicalists" (or revolutionary unionists) who as a whole helped forge a theory and practice of union work that continues to influence today's labor struggles.
