The Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) is an international member-run labor union founded in 1905. The IWW organizes workers by industry, as opposed to dividing its members by skill or trade, for the purpose of pooling numbers and resources. As a democratic, member-run union, members of the IWW decide what issues to address and what tactics to use to create better working conditions in their industries. Each year, members gather for the IWW's annual convention in Chicago, which is where the general headquarters is located.
