The State: Hussein reported that management granted voluntary recognition to The State newspaper in Columbia, S.C.

Planned Parenthood of Pennsylvania: While it had intended to affiliate with WBNG, Parks reported that the local did not have the capacity to bargain a contract for such a small unit, so the unit was transferred to the Philadelphia local; WBNG had done something similar with a unit of workers at Temple University.

Education Committee: Gabor talked about organizing training with a well-known trainer in the organizing space that could be beneficial to open, closed, old and new shops. It’s six sessions of 2-3 hours plus reporting back. Get in touch with Gabor if you’re interested in joining the group. Registration deadline is May 3.

CWA convention: It’s been moved to October in New Orleans. Email Hussein if interested in being part of the local delegation, as delegates must be chosen by the June membership meeting. Mettler has been appointed as TNG’s representative to CWA’s Constitution Committee.

Education Committee: Bryant said the committee meets Tuesday, May 4, at 5 p.m.

Organizing Committee: Sheedy said it has been coordinating with Jett and has identified opportunities in the nonprofit sector as well as three media shops.

It’s also working with TNG to provide opportunities. Sheedy is stepping in as committee chair while Fortier is on leave. T organize@ec.wbng.org

Administration-Operations Committee: Gabor said the committee is working on ramping up the new website, provided free by CWA. It’s also working on getting multiple Google Groups up and running. It also wants to hear from those who struggled with registration for the Executive Council meeting.

Bylaws Committee: Nelson said the next meeting is April 26 at 7 p.m. There will be some macro issues, but most of it will be cleaning up the current bylaws.

Good and Welfare: Gargoum said TNG’s constitution doesn’t permit unaffiliated members to vote on a variety of issues like contract ratification. She hopes it can be raised at the sector conference and convention to allow unaffiliated Executive Council members full voting rights.

Staff bargaining: There is a session slated for April 23.

Return to office: Parks said depending on variants and what members in WBNG units are doing, a return to work is not contemplated until January 2022. One person can be in the office by themselves.
