FOR THE UNION
When I announced my campaign, I promised to bring more transparency and democracy to our union. I am disappointed at how things were handled in the last election and that the current leadership prevented thousands of members from voting. I won’t stop fighting until we get fair and transparent elections.
“Jon Schleuss is one of the best things to happen to the NewsGuild in years. He brings a savvy understanding of how to mobilize members and a proven record of organizing and leadership. Campaign for him, invite him to your area, donate to his campaign. Vote for him. Jon is the real deal.”

“Jon Schleuss, a primary driver of establishment of a shop at The L.A. Times, has my vote for president of The NewsGuild. He's at the front lines of the technologies and demands reshaping our work lives, and has the ideas and energy to help the Guild reinvent to best navigate our transforming industry. He also has veteran union advisers to make sure the best of the past informs our path to the future. Please give his ideas a full and fair hearing.”

We have more power than we know. We’ve proved that in the dizzying run of winning campaigns from coast to coast.
I am determined to harness that same energy and commitment to improve the lot of every media worker in the United States and Canada.
