B.C. union newspaper nabs top national award
The Hospital Employees’ Union has received top honours from the Canadian Association of Labour Media for its quarterly newspaper the Guardian.
The award recognizes the “best combined use of writing, graphics, design, editorial content and judgment.”
First published in 1958, the Guardian has a circulation of about 50,000 and is distributed to HEU members, decision-makers and the media.
And for the second year running, HEU also received the “Best Print Ad” award — this time for an ad entitled “Not Wanted” that described the skills and experience of health care workers laid off at Lion’s Gate Hospital in North Vancouver.
