Union City has won its fifth award from the International Labor Communications Association, winning first place in the “General Excellence – Print and Internet / Electronic Newsletter / States and Other Organizations” category for 2015. The Metro Council’s newsletter joins UFCW Local 400’s “Union Leader” magazine and social media -- which won an impressive five awards -- as the only local publications to win awards this year. The winners “represent some of the best and most inspired work in labor communications and are to be congratulated in promoting the highest standards of labor journalism,” said ILCA.
