The CCU has recently initiated a highly successful communications and media strategy that has raised our profile and launched us into the online universe.
For starters, the CCU has created a Facebook group. Be sure to “Like” it to join up. It’s a great way to stay in touch with other members throughout the country, learn about upcoming events and debate important labour issues. Don’t be afraid to post photos of your union’s activities or cool labour links. That’s what it’s there for.
In addition, President Joanie Cameron Pritchett has created both a blog and twitter account so the CCU can better communicate with the outside world and the media about what’s going on in the union and the labour movement. But it’s also there for you, too. Again, if your union would like anything posted about upcoming events or issues, send it my way and we’ll put it up on the blog.
We have also created our own YouTube Channel, which will feature CCU events and activities and other videos on labour struggles and education from Canada and all over the world. By all means, send us videos of your union events and we’ll be happy to post them up.
