Campaign Workers, Unite! There is Power in a Union (with Meg Reilly of Campaign Workers Guild & Shanequa Charles)

Campaign Workers Guild (CWG) is organizing the movement to unionize political and issue-based campaign workers nationwide. CWG Vice President Meg Reilly joins us to talk about why transforming the working conditions of campaigns is necessary for our end goals, how building worker power impacts strategy and what’s possible, and gives us a play-by-play of where to start if you want to start a union. Host Kate Werning and organizer Shanequa Charles share some of their experience and learnings from recently participating in the unionization process on the Cynthia Nixon campaign. Stay tuned all the way til the end for a silly solidarity song.
