We are buildingtheguild.org
We believe that experience does matter and that the current leadership has proved their ability, vision, integrity and trust. Bernie Lunzer more than merits re-election to the President of The NewsGuild-CWA to serve with his team of Marian Needham and Martha Waggoner.
We support our locals, our members and the strength of our NewsGuild and CWA community.
My goal is to strengthen the community of The NewsGuild-CWA, maintaining its democratic traditions, and leading with vision, integrity and transparency.
How I Work
I work with Marian Needham, Martha Waggoner and the staff I manage. We are peers and a team. No decisions are made in isolation. The Guild’s executive council which numbers 10 – three full-time officers and seven rank-and-filers – is a crucial connection to advise decision making.
Today, I have a strong focus on expanding organizing, supporting bargaining and fighting for the ideals of our members. Journalists should be safe and their pay should reflect their importance. I also want to improve the work lives of all of our workers which includes advertising, circulation, interpreters, social justice workers and members of staff units.
