Worker power in the tech industry

Guided by our vision for an inclusive & equitable tech industry, TWC organizes to build worker power through rank & file self-organization and education.

Looking for a Tech Worker Union?

While TWC is strongly affiliated with several unions around the world, and counts many union members and organizers in our ranks, we are not a union ourselves. If you're interested in unionizing, we can help! If you're curious what is out there, check out this (rough) list of active and ongoing labor efforts in both tech and adjacent industries.

Who we are

We are a coalition of workers in and around the tech industry, labor organizers, community organizers, and friends.

Who we support

We work in solidarity with existing movements towards social justice, workers' rights, and economic inclusion.

How we work

We’re a democratically structured, all-volunteer, and worker-led organization. At this point, membership consists of attending meetings in person and working on the various projects that people are interested in. We organize online but IRL is the crux of what we do. Check out our Community Guide for more info. Join the Slack to connect with a local in your area.

Writers to the Front, AI to the Back

Tomorrow, the Writers Guild of America is calling for an international day of solidarity for their strike. So today, we hear from L.E. Correia, a TV comedy writer and WGA member, about the union’s precedent-setting fight against corporate power grabs with AI. Over 11,500 members are holding the (picket) line while pushing for better pay, improved workplace conditions, and a new type of demand on the bargaining table: protection against AI plagiarism.

Chatbots Can’t Care Like We Do: Helpline Workers Speak Out on World Eating Disorders Action Day

Today, World Eating Disorders Action Day, we hear from Abbie and fellow workers of Helpline Associates United about their efforts to provide quality care to their community – in the face of union-busting by a faulty, dangerous chatbot currently all over the news. Their struggle at National Eating Disorders Association, a traumatized, flawed organization, is a clear case of the need for trauma-informed organizing and a helpline built from the ground-up.
