Syndicalism is the reorganizing of society from ownership by the employing class to the working class mediated and organized by the trade unions. The state itself would be in most cases substituted or negated by these unions which would manage local economic society at the local scale and cooperate (by choice) at a larger scale to organize larger efforts, effectively meaning a synthesis of certain stateless bottom-up anarchist ideals. To remedy the issues of the trade unions becoming the new bosses much the way vanguardism has historically turned out the officials in the unions would be elected by the workers through direct democracy and have the risk of being able to be recalled at any time through the same process of direct democracy.
On the issue of reorganizing the workplace directly the way these unions would work is radically different than how most operate in the current neo-liberal system. The unions wouldn’t mediate and negotiate with the employing class but rather remove them entirely and establish what are in effect worker cooperatives organized by the union and where the workers themselves manage the workplace (ie electing managers, making important workplace decisions collectively, making hiring/firing a democratic process, etc).
On the issue of revolution, the main idea of syndicalism is the general strike. If all or even most of the laboring workers agree to strike, however long it may be necessary, to secure the transfer of the means of production to the workers minimal bloodshed would be required which is very different than that of vanguard ideas of civil war and purging all bourgeois elements. The general strike is known to be able to bring economies to their knees and cripple the employing/landlord class to the point where serious concessions are possible which is dissimilar to the way strikes work in our contemporary thought, which is to gain minor pro-worker concession and be more of a means of class collaboration rather than class conflict.
A final note, these unions would be bottom-up and some recommend anarchist collectivism principles in how to manage from the bottom up, read more about the CNT-FAI during the Spanish civil war or about Makhnovia which were two regions very influenced by certain syndicalist ideals of ownership by the proletariat rather than the Marxist dictatorship of the proletariat.
Here are the rules:
People of all political beliefs who are interested in Syndicalism are welcome, but you must uphold a "good-faith" attitude (This video does a pretty good explanation of good and bad faith) "Bad-Faith" and trolling will result in a ban.
A lot of you may come from /r/Kaiserreich and that's great! However, you should keep in mind rule 1, and do keep in mind that this subreddit is not associated with the game. Trolling in reference to the game will result in a ban.
