Publicity & Community Relations

Unionist Publications


“We are only as strong as our members are passionate, and we get them the knowledge they need to be passionate about workers’ rights.” Patricia Chardavoyne, Vice President of Publicity and Community Relations


The Publicity Department handles all communications with members, the media and the general public. Our team keeps you up to date with the latest information on the website and by email, and we curate our social media presence on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We also produce the union’s award-winning newspaper, The Unionist.


But no one walks alone. We need you, our members on location, to keep us informed of the latest developments in the field. Contact us with announcements and story ideas. If you are looking for a swap to another job location, email or call Patricia or Sarah below with your name, title, current location, desired location(s) and personal phone number.


And please take a moment to nominate a coworker to be profiled about his or her interesting, difficult or important job. Our goal is for every member to get a peek into the diverse job experiences of her sisters and brothers out in the field.


For queries about the Unionist, email or call VP Patricia Chardavoyne or Editor Sarah Dorsey.
