What we're about
The mission of the Independent Workers of America is to become the premier labor organization of choice for workers in the 21st Century, providing advocacy services and collective bargaining for working Americans who are dissatisfied with the status quo. Unlike traditional labor organizations, we offer a pro-business orientation with a focus on membership portability, worker ownership and worker representation. Our challenge is to convert the workers (60% of non union workers) who believe that unions serve a useful purpose into active members. Presented with this enormous opportunity, we, the IWA, enthusiastically accept this challenge to meet the needs of workers today, many of whom will change not only jobs but careers as well several times during their working lives.
