For the past several years the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) has been openly giving labor leaders numerous awards. From International Unions such as the AFL-CIO to local Unions like the St. Louis Newspaper’s Guild, the rendering of awards by the CPUSA to the labor unions are well documented. So it was only a matter of time before labor returned the favor.
Earlier this month the CPUSA News, People’s World, received not one, but three awards from the International Labor Communications Association (ILCA). The Communists at People’s World were “excited” at having received the awards:
“International Labor Communications Association announced the winners of its 2014 labor media awards, Oct. 10, and People’s World won three for news and analysis. Responding to the announcement, co-editors John Wojcik and Teresa Albano expressed their excitement and thanks.”
Coincidentally Communist and Co-Editor of People’s World, John Wojcik, was elected to the ILCA Executive Council as a Vice-President in September of 2013. At the time newly elected ILCA President Kathy Cummings, who has worked for NBC, PBS and CNN, said she was “thrilled” to have Mr. Wojcik on the council.
The ILCA was founded in 1955 and is “the professional organization of labor communicators in North America”.
