2013 Labor Day Tweet-a-thon



What: This Labor Day, we can all do our part to help send a positive message about the value of unions – and we’re encouraging WGAE members to do so through Twitter! Join us by sending a Tweet about why you’re proud to be in a union with the hash tag #unionmember this Labor Day weekend!

Why: Labor Day is a day most Americans can enjoy as a holiday thanks to the efforts of unions and workers’ rights advocates. It’s a great day to remind your friends and fans that unions still play an important role. And it’s an easy way to show you’re proud to be a union member.

When: Tweets can be sent Thursday Aug. 29, through Labor Day, Sept. 2, 2013

Who: Writers Guild of America, East members, staff & leadership with Twitter accounts will be tweeting. Your followers and supporters, along with our allies in the entertainment industry, professional sports community, workers’ rights and union movement, and more will be re-tweeting to maximize visibility of the effort.

How: Just write a personal tweet about what a union means to you, or use any of our sample suggested tweets to send through Labor Day weekend.
