IU 630: Music & Entertainment

What will you get out of it?

That depends on your level of participation. A union is only as strong as its membership. The IWW is a union of workers, for workers and with your help we can become a powerful catalyst in changing how our industry is structured.


Some of our goals include…

1. Discounts at local union-run recording and rehearsal facilities (Mystery Street Recording, an IWW Shop in Chicago, is offering 5% off all services to members, up to 25% off per band!)

2. Building an international circuit for touring IWW musicians (The IWW is GLOBAL union)

3. Helping performers get pay guarantees (Contracts! Direct Action!)

4. Building a sense of community and solidarity amongst entertainment workers


What about dues?

The dues rate for the IWW is income based and on a sliding scale:

Minimum Dues = $9.00 (US) per month – if you make less than $2,000.00 (US) per month;

Regular Dues  = $18.00 (US) per month – if you make between $2,000.00-$3,500.00 (US) per month;

Maximum Dues = $27.00 (US) per month – if you make more than $3,500.00 (US) per month.

(Sub-minimum dues are available at $5 per month for unemployed workers or those with extreme financial hardships.)
