It was great seeing you at the NANC conference this year. There were so many locals from around the country sharing news and ideas about the future of our business. I thought the information Marty Callahan from Boston had from the Peu Institute was especially helpful. He had the statistics from digital advertising compared to revenues from print advertising. It explains where the real revenue comes from. I know that will help many of us when we go to the bargaining table. Please stress to your membership and e-board the importance of attending this conference. Hope to see you there next year. Your Brother, Lou.

Union Delegates from newspapers across the US and Canada joined in Scottsdale Arizona earlier this week to discuss the current state of their respective papers and deliver reports on their home Locals.
I will post a full report shortly and provide details of our efforts at the Conference to insure our members continue to stand a fighting chance against greedy Corporations!

Women have made immeasurable contributions to the Labor Movement; mostly in the shadows of the male union leadership.
Not Dolores Huerta! Her work and service for immigrant farmworkers has not gone unnoticed and is only second to Cesar Chavez.
Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta founded the UFW and she continues to fight for the rights of working men and women all across America!
Dolores Huerta will be among 13 recipients to receive the Presidential Medal Of Freedom from President Barak Obama.
Congratulations Mrs.Huerta for the honor you so deserve for the sacrifices you've made to benefit a multitude of others.
