The Canadian Media Guild (CMG) will be sending seven delegates from five CMG branches to represent Canada at upcoming events involving our union: the NewsGuild-CWA Sector Conference in October, the Communications Workers of America (CWA) Convention in October, and the CWA Canada National Representative Council meeting in April.
These events are an opportunity to learn more about the union, strategies for advancing the interests of workers, and sharing ideas and information with fellow media and other workers.
Delegates will be elected from nearly 5,000 CMG members, including workers at Agence France Presse, APTN, CBC/Radio-Canada, The Canadian Press/Pagemasters North America, CKOF, TFO, Thomson Reuters, TVO, VICE Media, ZoomerMedia, and CBC Freelance Branch.
Other delegates will come from across Canada and the United States, chosen from the hundreds of thousands of union members who work in the areas such as telecommunications and information technology, the airline industry, news media, broadcast and cable television, education, and health care.
To join CMG President Carmel Smyth in representing the CMG, submit this nomination form by Aug. 16, 2021.
If needed, there will be a membership-wide vote to select the delegates. The term of the delegates will last until the end of 2022.
Vaccination or health related travel matters are the responsibility of each individual.
