The United Media Guild will hold a Local Meeting, then a St. Louis Post-Dispatch unit meeting Wednesday, Dec. 12, at its offices in St. Louis 1015 Locust Street, Suite 735.
At the Local Meeting at 5:30 p.m., we will seek delegate nominations for the NewsGuild Sector Conference Jan. 25-27 in Orlando, Fla., and the CWA Convention July 29-31 in Las Vegas. Nominations can also be e-mailed to business representative Shannon Duffy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The UMG can send up to four delegates to the sector conference. We expect to have two delegates to the CWA convention. To be eligible for the CWA Convention, a delegate must first attend the sector conference.
If we end up with more nominees than we have spots for, we will hold a Local-wide election by mail. The top two vote-getters will be delegates to both the Sector Conference and the CWA Convention.
At the P-D unit meeting, we will seek nominations for unit chair (currently Joe Holleman) and three at-large seats on our Executive Committee. Beth O’Malley and Denise Hollinshed currently hold at-large spots and one seat is vacant.
Nominations can also be e-mailed to Duffy at email@example.com.
If we have multiple nominees for unit chair or more nominees for at-large spots on the executive committee, we will hold an in-person vote at the unit meeting.
