Freelance Labor Panel: The Value of a Union to the Freelance Worker
Half the American workforce is expected to be independent contractors by 2020. Freelance workers often face unique challenges. Unions create the forum to resolve many workplace issues. Listen to union representatives from the newspaper, broadcast and film industries talk about their work with freelancers and what kind of benefits and services their union members receive. 

Panelists include Sean Hennessy, SAG-AFTRA Chicago Local's manager of commercial, corporate and new media contracts department, Chicago News Guild President Dave Pollard and Don Villar, NABET vice president. The Community Media Workshop is sponsoring this panel discussion.
