#BDS: Industrial Workers of the World Union Votes to Officially Support BDS


The Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) has officially voted to support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement in support of Palestinian rights, according to a press release from the IWW’s website on 2 December.

The “Resolution in Support of the Workers of Palestine/Israel” was adopted in an overwhelming vote both at the IWW’s convention in Minneapolis and by the membership via referendum, making the IWW the first union in the US and the third union in Canada to officially support the Palestinian United Call for BDS, according to a statement from the group.
