Calling volunteers for 20th anniversary strike history committee


Dear Sisters and Brothers in the Guild:

Many of you participated in the newspaper strike of November 1994.  Can you believe it’s been nearly 20 years?

We are putting together a committee to decide how we’d like to honor this important milestone. Ideas range from a memorial publication of the San Francisco Free Press, to a photo gallery and reception at the Guild, to a more involved and larger event held elsewhere in San Francisco.  Or, all of the above.  All comers and ideas welcome.

Please contact Kat Anderson, Administrative Officer, at kanderson@mediaworkers.org or at (415) 298-1335 to express your interest.

And, here’s a teaser of some of the items we can pull from our archives – the first of the strike bulletins:
