Jon Schleuss wins election for NewsGuild-CWA president

Jon Schleuss was elected president of NewsGuild-CWA, beating 12-year incumbent Bernie Lunzer in a re-run election.

Schleuss, a data reporter for the Los Angeles Times, received 1,979 votes to Lunzer’s 1,514 when ballots were counted Tuesday by the American Arbitration Association.

Lunzer won the original election earlier this year, beating Schleuss by 261 votes. However, Schleuss challenged that result, citing various issues in the election process. The NewsGuild’s Sector Election Referendum Committee ordered a re-run of the election.
