Labor struggles: Wobblies organize faculty!

Irvine -- Labor struggles have intensified recently. Dot.coms are trying to be unionized, Seattle newspaper writers and editors from the Newspaper Guild are on strike ( against the Seattle Times and Post-Intelligencer, and U of Washington Teaching Assistants (under the UAW banner) expect to walk out on Monday. Locally, UPTE has published full-page ads in the New University excoriating the UCI chancellor for giving lip service to concern about the university's research, health-care and technical workers. And both CUE and AFT have recently concluded protracted negotiations with the university covering clerical workers and librarians/lecturers at UC.

In Southern California, faculty at Claremont Colleges are trying to get a union recognized. Subversity, a KUCI public affairs program, this afternoon talks with an organizer of the effort to organize faculty there for the IWW, the Industrial Workers of the World, known as the Wobblies.

Wobblies organizer Dana Ward, a political scientist at Pitzer Collge, is the featured guest. Ward hosts the Anarchy Archives and is active in the International Society of Political Psychology, where he serves as executive director. Ward's home page is at: .
