On February 23, I began a position with the Canadian Freelance Union as a member organizer in Edmonton. I will be reaching out to current, former, and potential members of the CFU, while helping the union develop its communication and online outreach strategies.
The CFU is a community chapter of Unifor, and is the only labour union in Canada working for economic, political, and social justice for freelancers in the media and information sectors. It’s been around for a while (I have been a member for about four years) but many do not know of its existence. We’re trying to change that.
If you are a freelancer from Edmonton (or beyond, in Canada) and would like more information about the Canadian Freelance Union, please contact me.
