Industrial Workers of the World Day is celebrated every June 27. Industrial Workers of the World Day is to remember the work of industrial workers all over the world and to show that on the inheritance of the labor union, the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW). This date is chosen to be celebrated because it was when IWW was formed in 1905. This day pulls the attention to the workers and the critical role they play in producing goods that are very essential in our day-to-day life. Industrial Workers of the World Day also remembers the role labor unions have played in helping other workers, and specifically, it is dedicated to the Industrial Workers of the World.
“The secret to success is good leadership, and good leadership is all about making the lives of your team members or workers better.” – Tony Dungy
History Of Industrial Workers Of The World Day
Industrial Workers Of the World Day commemorates the same day in 1905 in Chicago when the group of organizers formed IWW and held their first meeting. Members of the IWW are also called wobblies and were one of the complete labor unions in the United States and had ties with anarchists and socialists. The goal of the union is to form One Big Union with workers from different industries and also to break the barriers between race and sex and unite them all for a common cause. They wanted to own a part of the company that they worked in. In 1910, the union had around 150000 members and was successful. In 1920, due to the opposition against World war I and many other reasons, their members were declined, and mainly there were conflicts between various labor groups and led to split within the organization itself. Later they achieved many goals and are still working for their rights and fights for fair treatment. But this day is still organized and is celebrated by them.
