The political theory of Syndicalism gives control of both industry and government to labor union federations.
Direct action, such as general strikes and sabotage, is a hallmark.
Syndicalists often consider themselves Democratic Socialists.
During the Spanish Civil War, these methods and theories were used by the Spanish anarchist-syndicalist union Confederacion Nacional del Trabajo (CNT).
In the United States, the best-known syndicalist union is the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW).
