REFERENDUM BALLOTS MAILED TO ALL NMG MEMBERS

News Media Guild members in good standing will soon receive ballots for voting on proposed bylaw changes recommended by the union’s Executive Committee. The ballots will be collected and tallied on June 19.

The changes would include providing an expedited grievance appeals procedure and opening the two New York City Representative Assembly seats to any New York City member, rather than giving one each to editorial and noneditorial staffers.

The changes also would have NMG’s Elections Committee, rather than the Executive Committee, rule on whether election rules have been violated, and allow for vote by conference call or meetings for small units within NMG.
