So, just wondering why the symbol for the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), a union, was used for this sublemmy (sorry, don’t know what else to call it yet).

I mean, I’m supportive of the IWW and am a dues paying wobbly myself. I also support cooperatives and hope to one day be a cofounder and worker/resident at one.

However I’m not seeing a direct correlation between the IWW, a majority of whose members are not in a cooperative and cooperatives, a majority of which are not unionized with the IWW, if they are unionized in the first place.


I don’t know because I am new to this community, but I assume it is a pretty good fit just because the IWW represents a pretty similar ideology. As I understand wobblies are usually anarchist and support worker democracy movements as opposed to other implementations of socialism.

A lemmy community for coops: consumer, housing, worker, platform etc.

Not officially affiliated with the IWW, it’s just a nice logo with historical relevance
