The Twin Cities Local led a union organizing workshop for broadcasters on March 30 in St. Paul, Minnesota. The event was led by Local Board member Mark Bradley. In addition to his work for the local, Bradley also serves on SAG-AFTRA’s National Organizing Committee as well as on several state and local-led AFL-CIO boards.
The local itself has a large number of broadcasters relative to its size, which makes it important for member leaders and union broadcasters to have the tools necessary to build stronger broadcast shops.
Bradley’s workshop focused on the nuances of one-on-one conversation and how members can better listen to, and communicate with, one another. Attendees also discussed new approaches to organizing to help strengthen their own stations and to help non-union colleagues form unions in their respective locations.
