June 6th Washington-Baltimore NewsGuild To Host Payday #OrganizeTheSouth Fundraiser

On Tuesday, June 6th, The Washington-Baltimore News Guild is proud to support and announce an Organizing Event and Happy Hour Fundraiser for our member & friend in the struggle for Labor Rights, Payday Senior Labor Reporter, Mike Elk who will be a host a discussion of our struggle to #OrganizeTheSouth.

Over the past several years, Elk has been on the ground reporting from Mississippi on the efforts of Nissan Workers, from Charleston, SC on the brave union drive to organize workers at Boeing, and has lived in Chattanooga, TN while covering unionization efforts at Volkswagen.

Elk has driven over 7,000 miles throughout the South and has diligently covered and shed a light on things the mainstream has overlooked.

WBNG Organizing Director Bruce Jett will also talk about WBNG’s recent string of successes among digital media union shops.
This event is open to any and all.
