  1. 1. GNUnion v 0.1 beta distributed and organized- network design, inspired by GNU and IWW and based on floss-like collaborative autonomous projects - SaysUs - LabourLeaks - UnionUpgrade -ValueChainHacking - WikiStrike
  2. 2. Union form today.. •abandoned the‘Class' struggle •compromise the working people • decline in membership while the working population grew •means something less then 1% of workers • is in a terminal crisis and is paralysed What would new social and networked emancipatory union look like and act?
  3. 3. “The time is past due for new forms of association that can steer the world away from its destruction The greatest hacks of our time may be forms of organising free collective expression, so that abstraction serves the people” [Wark] from “Workers of the world unite!” [Marx & Engels, 1848] to “Hackers of the world, GNUnite!” [Soderberg & Dafermos] and “Sysadmins of the world, unite!” [Assange]
  4. 4. Building the floss p2p tools to help to self-organize, and empower - GNUnion concept is inspired by GNU and IWW For the emancipation from waged slavery, one big meshwork – (emancipatory ecology) design based on modularly adjunct functions: hacking the supy-demand and -UnionUpgrade (solidarity with independent unions) - ProductionChainHacking (recovery of workers’ knowledge) - LabourLeaks (wikileaks type of impact) - WikiStrike (new forms of direct action)
  5. 5. Organizing the un-organizable precarious masses ? (collectivization through free and p2p self-expression and self-organisation) FINDING MISSION Job search websites, private and public Employment/waged slavery dealers: Monsterboard, Glassdoor,…their social networks HACKING MISSION Useful tools [like Universal Automation] Mass campaigns and mobilisations OWS, 15M
  6. 6. The Way Out of the Matrix- SaysUs from anonymous complaint to coordinated action  Anonymous submitter expression of  grievances about exploitation, bullying,  violations of rights, crimes & misdermeanors  (can include whistleblowing) by:  employer, government, corporation,  school, church, product or  service provider, ... -Utilize a rating system, collect relevant data, protect anonyminity, give user choice  Providing access to each other and  to tools, expertise, and direct advice  Legal support networks  Solidarity networks  Activism resources and networks  Online tools and resources  Sound, video, radio ...  Self-organizing and Action support  On-site exchange, networking and deliberation  Support for further self-empowerment  Recognize best practices of institutions  Self-training, how-to, DIY, DIWO.... 
  7. 7. LabourLeaks.org Exposing wrongdoings in the workplace Initially to scan and analyse leaked documents released by Wikileaks, as well as other groups like Anonymous, LiveLeaks. We be looking for large scale violations against producer, designer, users and consumer rights; such as stolen data, planned obsolescence, illegal and dangerous material use, capture and misuse of user-costumer data including selling the data to companies, production related threats to workers and public health. To feed in global actions or support ongoing union actions. In Collaboration: https://www.labourleaks.org/ WorkingGroup: https://on.usilive.org/groups/profile/322/labourle aks
  8. 8. UnionUpgrading GNUnion will help all other forms of unions at all organizational levels (base-membership-shop floor level-organization, management) to realize necessary organizational and networked transformations to become erempowered organized networks, strongly connected to the grassroots and society. We provide unions with resources, links, ties, actions, exchanges, social media skill-sharing and self-education campaigns. Workgroup: https://on.usilive.org/groups/profile/439/unionupgrading
  9. 9. Hack the Global Production-Commodity Network Using global chain mapping tools by workers [Mapeo Method] to create a network of user- worker-designer communities that can recover workers and consumers’ incorporated data and knowledge [by the management systems like Kaizen and Quality Chambers] through the entire production-commodity network, in order to hack the worker-society control mechanisms. Workgroup https://on.usilive.org/groups/profile/329/glo bal-commodity-production-network- mapping
