In 1911 he joined the International Workers of the World (IWW) and held leading posts in that organization. In 1922 he was expelled from the IWW for criticizing the opportunism of its leaders.

From 1928 to 1930 he served on the Executive Bureau of the Red International of Trade Unions (Profintern).
