SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

CAW local unions, as well as the CAW national union, were recognized for their communications efforts at the annual Canadian Association of Labour Media awards, held on May 7 in Burnaby, British Columbia.

As part of the weekend conference, CALM pays tribute to the important contribution good communications make toward the vitality of unions.

Congratulations to all those who won awards and honourable mentions and all those who put in a tremendous amount of work on local union websites, newsletters, facebook pages, email lists, podcasts and all sorts of communications channels to make sure CAW members get the information they need. In many cases, this is completely voluntary. Way to go!
