Organizing Update

M&R Strategic Services

Workers at M&R Strategic Services voted overwhelmingly to join the Washington-Baltimore Newspaper Guild, TNG-CWA Local 32035. There are 82 unit members at the online advocacy company with offices in New York and Washington.

Workers fought back against an intense employer anti-union campaign, including an unsuccessful effort to label 19 workers as supervisors to exclude them from the bargaining unit.


District 3 Organizing Retreat

Thirteen organizers from District 3 locals met in Atlanta to brainstorm about internal and external organizing throughout the District. CWA District 3 VP Richard Honeycutt said, "As the CWA STRONG initiative spreads, there is a new spirit of organizing in District 3. With the team of organizers we have in our district, there is no doubt that we will meet and even exceed our goals in the Southeast. Our organizers are excited, I’m excited, and together we will grow and strengthen our union."
