Otherwise known as IWW or the Wobblies, this revolutionary labor union organized workers in the Ann Arbor area at the University Cellar bookstore and at The People's Warehouse.

From 1995-1999, the IWW General Headquarters was at 103 W. Michigan Avenue in Ypsilanti, where Model Cave is now.

The Ypsilanti IWW GMB became active again in 2017

The Kvaran papers are a rich source for information about the operation and unionization of the food co-op. The collection has been subdivided into two series: Michigan Federation of Food Co-op's The People's Warehouse and The People's Warehouse IWW Local 660. The first series contains information about the day-to-day operations of the warehouse and the eventual demise of the co-op. The latter series contains information about the union formed by the workers of the PWC. Included are the contract negotiations of the union, the by-laws and information about the legal battle between the Local 660 and the PWC management over unfair labor negotiations.
