  7. Go-slow guide
    Instead of striking, workers with demands that the bosses are unwilling to meet can collectively decide to start a go-slow

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    By deliberately slowing the rate of work, all together, the bosses' profits are hit, without workers losing wages. If everyone sticks together in solidarity victimisation of individuals can also be prevented.
  8. Good work strike
    Advice and tips on taking good work strikes

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    Instead of a conventional strike, workers with demands that the bosses are unwilling to meet can collectively decide to have a good work strike. One of the biggest problems for service industry workers is that many forms of direct action, such as go-slows, end up hurting the consumer (mostly fellow workers) more than the boss. One way around this is to provide better or cheaper service - at the boss's expense, of course.
  9. Guide to sick-outs
    Rather than call a conventional strike, the sick-in is a good way to strike without striking. Sick-ins involve organising workers to call in

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    The idea is to cripple your workplace by having all or most of the workers call in sick on the same day or days. Unlike the formal walkout, it can be used effectively by single departments and work areas, and can often be successfully used even without a formal union organisation. It is the traditional method of direct action for public employee unions in the United States, which are legally prevented from striking.
  10. Industry and Labour
    Class Struggle at Work and Monopoly Capitalism

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1978
  11. The "Labor Aristocracy" and Working-Class Struggles: Consciousness in Flux, Part 2
    Against The Current vol. 124

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    Whatever the theoretical and empirical problems with the economics of the labor aristocracy thesis, its defenders still claim that well paid workers have generally been more reformist and conservative in their politics than lower paid workers. They point to the example of mostly white New York City construction workers ("hardhats") attacking antiwar demonstrators in the Spring of 1970; and contrast them with the militancy and progressive politics of some of the recent "Justice for Janitors" campaigns.
  12. Lessons from small shop organizing
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2013
    A significant amount of organizing experience in the IWW comes from working in relatively small workplaces such as stand-alone single shops or franchises of multiple smaller shops. These places present their own set of difficulties and opportunities.

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2015

  15. Making the most of spontaneous rebellions at work
    Advice on how to react when a big issue immediately angers a large number of people at your workplace

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    It would be nice if we always had tested and trusted structures in place able to respond to unexpected situations at work. Unfortunately this doesn’t describe many workplaces where structures tend to be weak and disorganised or slow and bureaucratic. The situations that upset us the most are likely to be unanticipated. Sudden rebellion is most likely to develop as a response to unexpected decisions or circumstances i.e. unfair sackings, shift changes etc, and our actions need often be rapid and ad hoc.
  16. Marx and Makhno Meet McDonald's 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2005
    Over the last several years, a revolving network of militants in Paris, France, have developed a strategy and tactics for winning strikes by marginal, low-paid, outsourced and immigrant workers against international chains, in situations where the strikers are often ignored by unions to which they nominally belong, or are actually obstructed by them.
  17. The New Worker Organizing 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2013
    Many, perhaps most, worker center–based organizing projects focused on workers in low-wage jobs, are conducted with the active support and, often enough, leadership provided by a variety of community-based organizations—with support from one or more unions.
  18. Notes from the class struggle: small group workplace organising 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    This pamphlet aims to show what small groups and unions can achieve in workplace disputes. These examples and analyses of successful small-scale actions should prove instructive to workers in a variety of fields from a variety of backgrounds, whether they are in the transport or manufacturing sector, students or illegal immigrants, or are employed in another branch of industry.
  19. Organising at work - some basic principles
    A list of what successful organisers say are the most important principles to remember

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    Organising begins when people question authority. Someone asks, "What are they doing to us? Why are they doing it? Is it right?" Encourage people to ask, "Who is making the decisions, who is being forced to live with the decisions, and why should that be so?" People should not accept a rule or an answer simply because it comes from the authorities, whether that authority be the government, the boss, the union - or you. An effective organiser encourages their fellow workers to think for themselves.
  20. Organising at work - the basics
    A basic introduction on why we should organise at work, and a few tips on how to get started.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    Almost everyone in this society is underpaid and over-worked. Many temps, contract and casual workers have very few rights, and permanent workers are still always under the threat of redundancy. Many people are massively exploited and ill-treated, and in Britain over 20,000 people are killed at or by their work each year*. Millions more suffer stress, depression, anxiety and are injured.
  21. Organising your workplace - getting started
    You're working, or just started work somewhere where there is no active collective workers' organisation. What can you do to get organised?

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    Nowadays many workplaces have no active workers' organisation. Depending on whereabouts you are in the world and what sector you work in there may or may not be much of a trade union presence. And even if there is it may just be a skeleton organisation which only represents workers with individual problems, and is unable to win demands of management. Or worse, it could be actively in cahoots with management against the workers.
  22. Other Voices: The Connexions Newsletter - March 12, 2015
    Organizing

    Resource Type: Serial Publication (Periodical)
    First Published: 2015
    The focus of this issue is organizing. How can we challenge and overcome entrenched structures of economic and political power? Our own source of power is our latent ability to join together and work toward common goals, collectively. That requires organizing. Power gives way only when it is challenged by powerful movements for change, and movements grow out of organizing. In this newsletter, we feature a number of articles, books, and other organizing resources.
  23. Out of the Driver's Seat

  28. Turning an issue into a campaign 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2015
    As an organizer, your goal is not just to help members solve their workplace problems but to help them build collective self-confidence and power. A campaign is just a series of steps that help people focus on a common issue, identify a solution, and build pressure on the person with the power to solve the problem.
  29. What Would it Mean to Win?
    Resource Type: Book

    Where is the movement today? Where is it going? Are we winning? The authors of the essays in this volume pose these and other momentous questions.
  30. The Whistle-Blower as Deep Mole 
    Spying on Malfeasance

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2014
    There’s an intriguing idea based loosely on the turn-of-the-century union practice of "salting" a workplace. Salting consists of union activists secretly hiring into an anti-union shop in order to promote unionism from within.
  31. Work-to-rule: a guide
    Taking industrial action without losing pay by following your work's rules so strictly that nothing gets done

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    Instead of striking, workers with demands that the bosses are unwilling to meet can collectively decide to start a "work-to-rule". Almost every job is covered by a maze of rules, regulations, standing orders, and so on, many of them completely unworkable and generally ignored. Workers often violate orders, resort to their own techniques of doing things, and disregard lines of authority simply to meet the goals of the company. There is often a tacit understanding, even by the managers whose job it is to enforce the rules, that these shortcuts must be taken in order to meet targets on time.
  32. Worker-Student Action Committees France May '68 
    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1969
    An account of the May-June 1968 events in Paris. The authors state that "our intention is not to 'clarify' the sequence of events which took place in France in order to make possible a ritual repetition of these events, but rather to contrast the limited views we had of the events at the time we were engaged in them, with the views we have gained from further action in different contexts."
  33. Working in Steel

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1988
