"There Is Power in a Union" is a song written by Joe Hill in 1913. The Industrial Workers of the World (commonly known as the Wobblies) concentrated much of its labour trying to organize migrant workers in lumber and construction camps. The song uses the tune of Lewis E. Jones' 1899 hymn "There Is Power in the Blood". "There Is Power in a Union" was first published in the Little Red Songbook in 1913.
To date, the song, which is over a century old, remains an inspiration to trade union movements around the world. Together we strengthen our union ..
