Chicago Newspaper Guild’s executive board unanimously passed a resolution at the March 12 meeting supporting Communication Workers of America Next Generation Network.
Next Generation Network promotes and supports younger activists to help engage union members. The goal is to get the future of the labor movement–the next generation of people under 35–involved and active union members.
The resolution states CNG’s support of this network, pledges to send local activists to the Next Generation Summit, designate a local coordinator from CNG to engage members under 35 and get people to sign up. You can read the full resolution here: http://imgur.com/edit
