Unions and the Movement to Protect Journalists

Labor unions are having a major impact across the digital media landscape and it's past time to discuss their role in the newsroom and in the C-suites, how collective bargaining can impact labor conditions and gender and racial equity and major opportunities and pitfalls in the union drive process.

This session is designed for:

  • Newsroom staff and journalists that want to turn solidarity into action
  • Anyone who would like to know more about the digital media unionization process
  • Leaders that support collective action, codetermination and rights at work
