Where: via Zoom
Join your colleagues on Wednesday, Jan. 27, 2021, at 6:30 p.m. EST for our Winter Membership Meeting. Let’s celebrate our wins, honor our trailblazers, and continue to build our power in 2021.
Building that power requires investing in a collective vision of our Guild as a constantly organizing, fighting union. This can’t be done without you! Join us at the membership meeting to hear about the robust and comprehensive strategy—developed by Guild leadership—to further strengthen our union and provide more resources to create active and organized workplaces. In addition, NYGuild President Susan DeCarava will report on the state of our union, and unit leaders across the Local will update everyone on a wide range of member-driven initiatives.
Our keynote speaker, Sara Nelson, international president of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, knows firsthand how critical power-building and an engaged membership can win campaigns and garner strong contracts. The New York Times called her "America's most powerful flight attendant" for her role in helping to end the 35-day government shutdown in 2019 and InStyle Magazine placed her on its ’19 Top 50 Badass Women list. We're excited to learn more from Sara’s experience fighting alongside and advocating for her colleagues.
As we demonstrated in our fight for #JustCauseNoExceptions in 2020, Guild members--as a union and a community of media workers—have the ability to build, leverage, and exert collective power. Our focus in 2021 is building and sustaining that power, and it starts with you. Make sure your voice is heard and you're part of the Guild's next chapter! We look forward to seeing you on Wed., Jan. 27.
