Vote Bernie – build with the experienced team – Lunzer, Needham, Waggoner
We have a common enemy in owners who don’t care.
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.

Bernie Lunzer’s experience, perseverance and passion are what The NewGuild-CWA needs to keep battling corporate greed and preserve jobs and journalism at this pivotal time in the history of the Fourth Estate. I wholeheartedly endorse Bernie’s candidacy. Dean Olsen, unit chairman Springfield (IL) Unit, United Media Guild Staff Writer at The State Journal-Register and NewsGuild organizer […]
As TNG Secretary-Treasurer, I spent the last 5 1/2 years of my media/union career side-by-side with Bernie Lunzer at headquarters in Washington, D.C.

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.
