Labor Day Tweet-A-Thon
This Labor Day Weekend, Actors' Equity Association members participated in the American Rights At Work Tweet-a-thon. The four day event brought together union members who work in entertainment, sports, and news media – all of whom tweeted about the advantages of being a #unionmember for themselves and workers in each sector of the economy. More than 11,000 tweets were sent by union members and their supporters throughout the long weekend, reaching 11.7 million people on Twitter and creating up to 43.8 million impressions! Here are just a few:
