The Norwich Bartenders’ and Hospitality Industrial Union Branch of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW).
God that’s a mouthful.
Essentially, we are a group of workers in the service sector who have recognised that the industry is chronically in need of workplace organising. People who work in bars and restaurants often work anti-social hours, for long shifts, with difficult and demanding people (customers and bosses), and for very little money. There is very little representation of workers in bars and hospitality, yet is it is sadly necessary.
We want to make things better for people working in the sector, by improving relations with employers and the wider community, encouraging pride and enjoyment in our noble professions, and offering training and support for our members.
If you want to get involved, or are interested in hearing about how we can help you, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
