Cost-Cutting. Buyouts. Layoffs. Journalism is anything but comfortable in 2019. So it’s no surprise that a movement to unionize newsrooms is sweeping the media industry.
So let’s talk about it! Join ONADC for a panel about media unionization in 2019. Why are so many newsrooms organizing right now? How does a union drive start— and where does it end? And what’s so great about being in a media union, anyway?
Our expert panel features journalists that helped organize their newsrooms and a lead negotiator from the Writers Guild of America East (also our sponsor). Vox labor reporter Alexia Fernández Campbell will moderate.
Interested in unionizing? Skeptical of unions or the process? Maybe you just want to mingle and hear more! All are welcome.
