2022 Annual Convention

Join us on Friday, June 3 at 10am for our Annual Convention.

Panel discussion
Media and Labor – A New Relationship or a Fleeting Moment?
What’s new in media coverage of labor? Is there a new attitude towards labor in mainstream media, and if so, how do we capitalize on this moment? What is the pandemic’s role in the recent coverage of labor? Is the public more sympathetic to union members since they held jobs deemed essential and helped us all deal with the pandemic.
