“Why is it that two important (Union City) stories of labor today (8/20/14) are reprints from the Washington Post and Washington Business Journal?” writes Bruce Wolf, OPEIU Local 2. “Shouldn't these stories come directly from Labor? What do teachers belonging to the NEA think of their new president? What about ATU speaking directly to the local and national labor community regarding its rescue of the NCL property and what happens next? I don't want to get my labor news second-hand from the bosses publications. Labor should be speaking to Labor.”
While our first preference is for local labor stories from local labor sources, that’s not always possible. Many mainstream media outlets are now providing excellent coverage of news affecting the metro-area labor movement, a trend we’re happy to support and promote. Staff at some of those outlets, by the way, are union members. Local labor news tips/suggestions/submissions are always welcome: email them to us at [email protected]
