Guild to host NewsGuild Multi-District Council meeting in June

The Buffalo Newspaper Guild will host the NewsGuild-CWA’s 2017 Multi-District Council on June 24 to 25 in the Millennium Hotel in Cheektowaga.

The meeting, said NewsGuild Executive Vice President Marian Needham, will serve as an important precursor to the CWA Convention and Guild Sector Conference to be held in Pittsburgh in August.

The meeting will feature a Saturday workshop to familiarize members with a CWA-wide project that will help officers and organizers reach out to current and prospective union members.

“The Guild’s Special Assignment Organizers will conduct a skills-building workshop to help local leaders increase the effectiveness of their outreach to members and non-members alike, to help build our numbers and increase the strength of our union,” Needham said.
