Guild rep attends NewsGuild’s New Local Officers Seminar



Luke Hammill, the Buffalo Newspaper Guild’s Sun papers steward, recently attended the national NewsGuild’s New Local Officers Seminar, held March 1 to 4 in the Baltimore, Md., area.

Topics included stewards’ rights and responsibilities, bargaining goals and strategies, mobilization and organizing. Many of this year’s attendees came from newly organized shops across the United States, reflecting the wave of unionization that has taken place at American media organizations in the past few years.
