As I move on

I have been fortunate indeed to have served the NewsGuild in multiple roles over my career. I consider the Guild to be the best hope for the future of journalism and journalists, and all the other workers we represent. I worked to preserve the Guild’s identity as a bottom-up, democratic union. Please continue to fight to preserve the Guild. I thank all of you for your support over my period of leading the Guild. I am especially thankful for all of the wonderful activists I have known, learned from and worked with. It’s their spirit that always got me through. I will continue to help wherever I can in the continued pursuit of fairness, and the quest for justice. Best to you all as I move on. In solidarity, Bernie Lunzer
