Quick Overview

This pamphlet is a compilation of the writings of Alexis Buss, who served as General Secretary-Treasurer of the Industrial Workers of the World from 2000 to 2005. These columns concerning minority unionism were originally written as articles for the IWW's newspaper, the Industrial Worker. Fellow Worker Joe Berry, an instructor at the University of Illinois in the Chicago Labor Education Program, put together the list of supplemental references.

This pamphlet shows that a small group of workers, even a union of two, can effectively and unofficially keep the boss from putting his hand into our back pockets. Known as minority unionism, this method of winning better conditions is not about assuming strength in numbers or legal recognition, but in the solidarity of workers willing to act on their own behalf to gain controls over their jobs. Workers who recognize that their interests are distinct from those they work for will find this a historical, insightful, and most useful of all, a practical pamphlet to help them get around the more conventional methods of unionism that favor the bosses.
