Industrial Workers of Great Britain

The Industrial Workers of Great Britain (IWGB) was a syndicalist group who believed that all workers should organise as a single class to take possession and control of the machinery of production and abolish the wage system. The IWGB was modelled on the original Industrial Workers of the World founded at Chicago in 1905.
