Welcoming Andrea Kannapell to the Guild's Executive Board
Andrea Kannapell of The New York Times won a three-way contested election for an open Executive Board seat, created when Hilary Russ (Reuters) was elected as the Local’s First Vice President earlier this year.
Andrea garnered 402 votes while Peter Szekely of Reuters had 291 and Stephanie Davis of Consumer Reports secured 107.
Andrea, who will join the Executive Board immediately, has been an active Guild member for more than three decades. She has served as a Times Shop Steward, on the unit council and on the unit’s grievance committee.
“What I find most gratifying about this election is the confirmation that so many of us believe the NewsGuild is going in a good direction — expanding, developing talent and encouraging cutting edge skills,” Andrea said. “I look forward to working with the Executive Board to stand up for workers as crucial partners in our organizations’ success.”
