The current issue of CineMontage, the journal of the Motion Picture Editors Guild, includes a "Getting Organized" column on recent elections at a reality television production company in New York and a post-production facility in Culver City. In both instances, employees voted in favor of union representation, despite their employers' efforts to discourage them from organizing.
Local 700 National Organizer Rob Callahan writes:
Democratic participation in decision-making is perhaps the most fundamental distinction between organized and non-union workplaces. ... [W]orkplace democracy is, in fact, the well-spring from which all the other advantages of union employment flow.
The full text of Callahan's column is available in the print edition of the Fall 2015 issue of CineMontage, or online on the Post, Proud website.
