The General Defense Committee Local 6 was founded in October 2002 by members of the IWW Ottawa-Outaouais branch. It is now a regional local with its membership open to IWW members and sympathizers across Canada.
In our nine-year history, we have defended workers, squatters, buskers and members of the ground-breaking Ottawa Panhandlers Union.
Dues are $20 with a one-time $5 initiation fee for new members. Members must agree with the Preamble of the IWW’s Constitution. Membership in the IWW is not required.
