The ballots have arrived!
(From the Lawrence Journalism Workers Guild Twitter account.)
“In three weeks, we believe the LJW Guild will finally be recognized as a union.
Our ballots have been mailed to us, and they’ll be counted on Dec. 28. We are looking forward to ringing in the new year with a voice at the bargaining table.
We will be able to advocate for ourselves, our community and the future of journalism in Lawrence and Douglas County. It’s taken some time, but we’re still committed to our goal.
Thank you to our new allies — both individuals and groups — who have pledged to stand with us. We appreciate the overwhelming support we’ve received thus far, and we’re thrilled to have such strong community backing going forward.
The LJW Guild”
