BEST FRONT PAGE
First Place
Kristen Kvist-Morrow
"Friends Don't Let Friends Cross Picket Lines"

Judges Comments 
This page wins first place for the clarity and resolution of the cover. The red and blue color scheme runs throughout the cover. The choice of pictures were great and the slogan button in the middle signifying unity brings it all together.

BEST FIRST-TIME ENTRY WRITING
Third Place

"2019 CT VETERANS STAND DOWN EVENT"

Judges Comments 
Veterans are an important group that we must continue to take care of. They are plagued with many issues from mental health to job security. The story on Stand Downs was a great way to inform members and the community of the resources provided for veterans and alleviates the shame of needing help.

Very clean design and layout of information. Everything is easy to find and the menu isn't cluttered. Home page makes good use of the content area above articles for announcements. Overall great and easy to use site, especially for members!

Take Action

The tax credit of an additional $4,500 for union-made electric vehicles made in the U.S. is a win for UAW members, unorganized autoworkers, and the entire labor movement. The provision:

  • Supports the high standards in wages, benefits, and safety that UAW members have bargained for in the auto industry
  • Incentivizes nonunion companies to stop spending millions on union busters and to allow their workers to form their unions freely
  • Encourages U.S. auto manufacturers to bring back jobs they offshored
