I've looked all over google and can't seem to find any information either way.

Not properly, no, but IWW is as good a place as any to get involved in the An-Synd scene anyway. I joined a few months after I "converted;" not all that practical as an actual organizing scheme though they leave you with some nice tips- for me it's just a way to meet other anarchists though. But then I'm a mutualist, so I'm not really all that interested in unionism as a whole.

Hello Fellow Worker (FW),

The IWW does not identify as an Anarcho-Syndicalist union or Anarchist in general, but many Wobblies think of the IWW as an anarchist union. The Anarcho-Syndicalist Review (ASR) interweaves Anarcho-Syndicalism and the IWW as being one and the same. Jon Bekken has been an editor of ASR and the Industrial Worker, IWW newspaper.

THE IWW is not an Anarchist organization, but some people are confused on the issue that the IWW had to make a webpage about this:

Some people think that all IWW members are by extension Anarchists:

"But the official stance and the reality on the ground tend to be very different. In many people on the left’s eyes, and especially actual IWW members, the IWW is an anarchist organization. "
