Pride at Work Convention

NewsGuild-CWA President Jon Schleuss was recognized by Pride at Work, a constituency group of the AFL-CIO that supports LGBTQIA+ workers in the labor movement, at their 2022 quadrennial Convention with a Solidarity Award. He received the award for creating a new spirit of organizing and his inspirational leadership as an out labor leader. NewsGuild member Chris Serres, an award-winning reporter at the Star Tribune, presented Schleuss with the award and spoke about the massive organizing in the Guild and about the union’s willingness to engage in fights that come in conflict with journalistic notions of “objectivity.” “I want to dedicate this award to our members because our members are our true strength,” said President Schleuss in his acceptance speech. Several CWA members also attended the convention, heard from dynamic and informative guest speakers, and built solidarity with members of other unions.
