Workers Rights

These groups work toward a world where workers are free of discrimination and abuse from employers, and where every worker has the opportunity to support themselves financially as a foundation for a meaningful life in line with their goals.

Groups campaign for workers’ rights with the aim of enshrining these in law and ensuring their continued observance, either by offering legal advice and support, or solidarity. Other groups work to promote better wages and conditions.

Homeworkers Worldwide

Homeworkers Worldwide supports homeworkers in their struggle for rights and recognition. Homeworkers are mainly women who do paid work at home. Their work is low paid, they have no employment rights or social protection and are rarely recognised as workers. We support grassroots organising projects, campaign for retailers to improve conditions for homeworkers in their supply chains and lobby for international regulation to strengthen the rights of homeworkers and other informal workers.

Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) Leeds

The IWW is a grassroots and democratic union where members support each other through solidarity against exploitation we face as workers, tenants and claimants. The action we take is decided at the grassroots level and our (low) membership fees are not spent on highly paid union officials or political party donations. We are a radical union that aim is to see society re-organised to meet the interests of all people, and not just shareholders and corporations. We welcome new members to branch meetings.
