Unions on Twitter | Creative Unions - 0 views

  • 1) Set up your website to receive incoming RSS feeds from the picket lines or other major events like conferences.
    2) Labor leaders can twitter their daily activities to keep members apprised of what leadership is working on and fighting for.
    3) If you don’t have time or staff to write quality blog posts, use twitter to keep the community up to date on the issues and concerns of your union.
    4) Set up a bogus Twitter account using the name of a hated CEO or manager. Post entertaining items like “Don’t know why our workers are so upset at my salary. Don’t think they realize all the maintenance needed on 100 foot yachts.”
    5) Post up the minute bargaining updates to the website right from the bargaining table.

Global Voices Online » Egypt General Strike 2008 - 0 views

  • Now Egyptian bloggers are working around the clock to tell the world about the workers' revolt that is shaking their country, as thousands rally for a better life. They are at the frontline of unrest, which has so far left five people dead, scores injured and an undetermined number of online activists, organisers, politicians and mere spectators behind bars.

    Their coverage comes in the form of blog posts, YouTube videos, Twitter feeds, Flickr shots, Facebook messages and all other online tools they can get their hands on. The battle continues.
