The Saul Miller Awards are a sub-category of Writing Awards. These awards highlight writing related to some of the key activities of unions: organizing, collective bargaining, and political action. The awards honor the late Saul Miller, a director of the AFL-CIO Department of Information, and a founder of ILCA.
The 2014 Saul Miller Award for Organizing by a National/International Union goes to IBEW’s Lucas Oswalt for his piece Union-Busting ‘Onslaught’ Snares Organizing Campaign.
Judges comments: “It’s not very often that a union dedicates this much space to an organizing loss. A nicely done article: It explains the work being organized, focuses on one campaign, highlights how the same company used the same tactics in other elections in other parts of the country, and tells how union organizers and key supporters are adapting and not giving up.”
