Nominations for UMG Local Officers

Sep 27, 2018 by

Thursday, October 4, United Media Guild, Local 36047 will have two local nomination meetings – at noon and 6:00 p.m. – in the Guild office (1015 Locust St, suite 735) for all Executive Committee officer positions.  The positions are three-year terms and will run from January 1, 2019 – December 31, 2022.  Unit chair positions are also expiring and those will be addressed at individual unit meetings conducted between now and the end of the year.

It is easy to place one’s name in nomination.  Simply show up and nominate someone.  If they’re not there to accept the nomination, have their signed acceptance with you.  Or, if you can’t make it over, simply call the office during the meeting (314-241-7046) and we’ll have someone do it for you (we want to make sure that everyone has a chance to participate; however, we’ll then also have to check with the nominee to confirm that he or she is interested in running).

Once nominations are closed, if there are more nominees than positions, the local will conduct an election by mailing ballots out prior to October 31 and ballots will be mailed back and counted in November.  Officers will be sworn in at our first meeting of the New Year.

Come out on Labor Day and march with our CWA sisters and brothers!

Aug 29, 2018 by

This year CWA is THIRD in line because it’s our 80th anniversary of marching in this parade!

So it’s safe to say that we’ll be heading out at 9:00 a.m. sharp!  But you’ll need to show up earlier than that if you want to grab one of the awesome free T-shirts that we’ll be handing out!

We’ll be lining up at 14th Street and Tucker. . . See you there!

Workers Interfaith Network, a small UMG bargaining unit in Memphis, is working with the (CWA) United Campus Workers and they are KILLING it!

Nov 1, 2017 by

An enormous victory for United Campus Workers

 

UT Knoxville and UT Chattanooga just released public statements opting out of Governor Haslam’s plan to outsource facilities services. United Campus Workers, our small statewide union, took on a billionaire governor and a multinational corporation in a 3 year fight to save thousands of jobs … AND WE WON! The big domino has fallen so we’re anticipating more campuses to follow!!

UNITED CAMPUS WORKERS is a force to be reckoned with!

Thank YOU for your continued support for workers across Tennessee.  Workers Interfaith Network will continue to partner with UCW to help all workers throughout our state.

2017 Labor Day Parade!

Sep 1, 2017 by

 

Every year the United Media Guild marches with our CWA sisters and brothers.  This year the CWA is second in line!  The line starts on Olive, at 15th St.), travels east to Tucker, turns right and goes to Market and turns right again and goes a couple hundred yards on Market.  That’s it.  It’s less than a mile.

The parade starts at 0900 but you need to get there early in order to get a CWA shirt (all the various unions hand out shirts to their members, usually it’s a common color).   Also, there will be a rally at 19th and Olive at 8:00 a.m. and everyone who is lining up is encouraged to stroll on over to check it out.  With organized labor and the middle class coming under constant attack, there are some wonderful organizations and coalitions doing good work to push back on behalf of working families and this rally promises to highlight some of that work (the rally is expected to run about 40 minutes).

As usual, once the parade is over, everyone gathers near the finish line for some refreshments.  I hope to see you all there!
