Industrial Workers of the World

The working class and the employing class have nothing in common. There can be no peace so long as hunger and want are found among millions of the working people and the few, who make up the employing class, have all the good things of life.

Striking Workers At Insomnia Cookies Join the IWW              

*Click here to donate to the strike fund*

By Jake Carman,  October 2013 Industrial Worker

At midnight on Sunday, Aug. 18, the night shift at the Harvard Square Insomnia Cookies voted unanimously to launch a strike for higher wages, healthcare and freedom to build a union. On Tuesday, Aug. 20, all four strikers joined the Industrial Workers of the World and initiated a public campaign to achieve their goals.

A clarifying statement from the IWW Sisters' Camelot Canvass Union              

We are still on strike and back-pay is still being withheld.

On September 1, people who want to undermine our union created a fake indymedia facebook page and used it to publicly publish a phony press release meant to look like it was written by us. This press release falsely claimed that we had called an end to our strike.

This fake press release is clearly meant to confuse people into unknowingly working against the rights of the striking workers by fundraising for or giving money to Sisters' Camelot while the fundraisers are still on strike. This statement is meant to help clarify this confusion created by such dishonesty.

We are still on strike. We are the fundraisers from Sisters' Camelot. Fundraising activity done for Sisters' Camelot is therefore scabbing.
