CMG condemns the ongoing online harassment of journalists. It is heartbreaking to see in this day and age the ugly, often violent, racist remarks aimed at many female media workers and journalists of colour.
The union continues to work with employers on supports and protections for these journalists and media workers who represent many of the boldest, bravest voices in the industry.
CMG commits to working with employers, other unions, anti-racism groups and journalism advocacy agencies to promote anti-racism, gender equity and a better understanding of the critical role journalism and an independent media play in society.
Members are encouraged to reach out to CMG staff reps as needed.
President, Canadian Media Guild
