IAM Communications Department Wins Labor Journalism Awards

The IAM Communications Department has been recognized as one of the best communications teams in the labor movement by winning three awards in the International Labor Communications Association’s 2021 Labor Media Contest.

The annual ILCA Labor Media Awards Contest recognizes excellence among union publications, websites, film, video, and other media. It is the first and largest competition exclusively for labor journalists. The 2021 winners represent the best work in labor communications and promote the highest standards of labor journalism during the 2020 calendar year.

The IAM Communications Department won awards from the IAM Journal, earned media and in video production.

ILCA’s Saul Miller award highlights 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.
