The Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), members of which are commonly termed “Wobblies“, is an international labor union that was founded in Chicago in 1905. The origin of the nickname “Wobblies” is uncertain.[5] IWW ideology combines general unionism with industrial unionism, as it is a general union, subdivided between the various industries which employ its members. The philosophy and tactics of the IWW are described as “revolutionary industrial unionism”, with ties to socialist,[6] syndicalist, and anarchist labor movements.

The IWW’s founders included William D. (“Big Bill”) Haywood, James Connolly, Daniel De Leon, Eugene V. Debs, Thomas Hagerty, Lucy Parsons, Mary Harris “Mother” Jones, Frank Bohn, William Trautmann, Vincent Saint John, Ralph Chaplin, and many others.
