VII. “Just as water flows to its lowest level, so do wages if the bulk of the workers are left unorganized. The day of craft unionism – the aristocracy of labor – was over when mass production methods were introduced. To organize the unorganized must be a cardinal principle of any union worth its salt; and to accomplish this is not merely in the interest of the unorganized, it is for the benefit of the organized as well.”

When we say “an injury to one is an injury to all” we mean just that. Our union’s founders left us with a mission, an historic task to carry out and see through: to unite all working people under the banner of democratic, rank-and-file unionism. But our task is not yet complete and we still have work to do. Be there for the next Passing the Torch as we discuss what it means to organize the unorganized – and how to do it!
