Montreal-area media workers, freelancers and students are invited to a free social night and networking event on Monday October 15 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Sun Life Building, 7th Floor, Salon III (1155 Rue Metcalfe).

Come and join us for a free drink and snacks and get to know some of the other media workers in the city. The event is free to attend, but please register for your free ticket at this Eventbrite page.

This event is co-hosted by CWA Canada and the Montreal Newspaper Guild, whose members at the Montreal Gazette are currently negotiating with Postmedia for a new contract. They are fighting to keep fair working conditions for themselves and future generations of journalists in Montreal.

CWA Canada is the country’s only all media union, with 6,000 members at media companies and newspapers coast to coast. CWA Canada has a free membership for student, volunteer, precarious and emerging media workers through its Associate Member program. CWA Canada is the parent union of the Canadian Media Guild, which represents members at media outlets such as VICE Canada, CBC, and The Canadian Press, as well as freelancers through its voluntary membership program.
