What: Are you a new or longtime Wobbly who’d like to get to know your fellow workers better? Interested in what we’re all about or currently up to in and around Boston? Just looking for another excuse to hang out with the Wobs? …then you’re invited to the “IWW Social” !!! Delegate services (for joining the union, paying dues, etc), IWW info, and merchandise are available. At the socials, we have food, cheap drinks, good conversation, and usually a Wobbly Song or two sung. We try to get entertainment or some sort of special event to happen at each of the socials to keep them varied. We’d like to encourage you to invite your friends, family, and coworkers as well. All are welcome to attend.
