(en) US, Austin, IWW Organizing Summit 2006

Date Wed, 15 Feb 2006 19:34:19 +0200

"By building organizations based on solidarity, rather than on bureaucratic
chain-of-command, we build organizations that by their very existence help to
bring a new kind of society into being." --Staughton Lynd, Solidarity Unionism
For the first time in recent memory wobblies from all over will be meeting with the
primary objective of discussing organizing. The Organizing Summit is what many wobs
have been wanting for years. It is a chance to focus on organizing in the union and
what it means to say, "Every member is an organizer."
The weekend will be hosted by the Austin GMB and was proposed at General Assembly 2005
in the hopes of supporting the work of the Organizing Department Formation Committee
(ODFC). The assembly endorsed the Summit and the ODFC has also endorsed the meeting.

As proposed by the Austin GMB, the weekend will have four goals:

organizing workshops
organizing discussions and presentations
the state of organizing in the union
discussion of the preliminary report of the ODFC
Attendees must be in good standing in the IWW. Presenters in some cases will not be
required to be IWWs.
