Union City has won first place as Best Electronic Newsletter in the International Labor Communications Association (ILCA) Labor Media Awards this year, the third consecutive award and the second time winning top honors. In 2008 Union City won as best State and Local Body publication and last year it won Honorable Mention in the International, National and Other Labor Organizations category. “We’re tremendously honored by this recognition from our peers,” said UC Managing Editor Chris Garlock. “Chris and Adam (Wright, Assistant Editor) work hard to get the news out to the local labor community every day,” added Metro Council President Jos Williams, “even when DC closed down during the February snowstorms, Union City came out every day, covering the efforts of union members to keep the metro region moving.” Garlock and Williams credited UC readers “for keeping us focused,” the Council’s affiliates for their “regular and reliable” reporting on local activities, and the Executive Board for its “unstinting and unwavering support.” The 2010 ILCA awards will be formally presented at the annual Labor Media Awards Luncheon in November.
