What will you get out of it?
That depends on your level of participation. A union is only as strong as its membership. The IWW is a union of workers, for workers and with your help we can become a powerful catalyst in changing how our industry is structured.
Some of our goals include…
1. Discounts at local union-run recording and rehearsal facilities (Mystery Street Recording, an IWW Shop in Chicago, is offering 5% off all services to members, up to 25% off per band!)
2. Building an international circuit for touring IWW musicians (The IWW is GLOBAL union)
3. Helping performers get pay guarantees (Contracts! Direct Action!)
4. Building a sense of community and solidarity amongst entertainment workers
What about dues?
The dues rate for the IWW is income based and on a sliding scale:
Minimum Dues = $9.00 (US) per month – if you make less than $2,000.00 (US) per month;
Regular Dues = $18.00 (US) per month – if you make between $2,000.00-$3,500.00 (US) per month;
Maximum Dues = $27.00 (US) per month – if you make more than $3,500.00 (US) per month.
(Sub-minimum dues are available at $5 per month for unemployed workers or those with extreme financial hardships.)
