One of the best parts of attending the Guild and CWA annual meetings is to talk to other union leaders about what is happening in their locals.
And there is no one I look forward to chatting with more than Michael Cabanatuan, leader of the Northern California Media Workers Guild. It’s not just that Michael is a very nice guy. He also leads the Guild local at the Hearst-owned San Francisco Chronicle, and what happens there often heads our way next. (Michael also lives in Albany, California, an irony we both enjoy.)
Here’s his assessment of the Hearst Corp. and how it is treating workers there. It’s not pretty, but Chronicle workers are lucky to have a strong president and leadership. We support Michael and his colleagues as they have supported us.
