FTI 1220 Communications and Digital Media 03012020
March 1 - March 6
For the IUPAT, an aggressive public relations strategy is not an option; it is a mandate. From organizing to political action to gaining new work for our members, building positive support from the public is vital to the future of the IUPAT. A positive public image can translate into more work, more organizing victories, and a better relationship with elected officials. Implementing a comprehensive media strategy is important to effectively communicate with our members, customers, and communities and build a positive image for the IUPAT and the labor movement. The information in this course is designed to help IUPAT, BM/ST’s, staff, and members develop their own communications program and get started on crafting a pro-worker message to grow our membership and win the online and offline battle for public opinion.
