Vote Bernie – build with the experienced team – Lunzer, Needham, Waggoner

A collective bargaining program that’s innovative and demanding. An organizing program that’s historic for The NewsGuild-CWA. Outreach efforts that include free press, pay equity and other issues.
These are just some of The Guild’s accomplishments under my leadership. We will continue to expand on these successes if you re-elect me as president. This Guild election matters, and I want your vote.

Change is all around us. It’s up to us. What we do now will shape our industry for years to come.
Journalism depends on us.
Re-elect Bernie Lunzer NewsGuild-CWA President
Community activist in Pittsburgh.
What The NewsGuild-CWA Does
We are moving forward in a substantive way and committing resources to workers throughout North America.
The Job of President :
- Movement Building
- Leading within CWA
- Advocating for Journalists
This election is an opportunity to define our challenges and solutions. Despite fewer staff we’re getting the job done. We’re under the same pressures as our units.
I know how things work at CWA and how to get things done. We’ve used strategic funds to organize and to mobilize and we get first contracts.
