Revamped Labor Website Site Introduced

By Eileen Buckley

Buffalo, NY – On this Labor Day, some local unions are using multi-media platforms to spread their message. A labor based website has been revamped and goes live today.

The website wnylabortoday.net actually launched in April of 2008. The site delivers local and national labor stories. But today's re-launch adds a new layer. It includes more podcasts videos and blogs.

Tom Campbell is editor and publisher of the site. He says it was created for the Western New York Labor community. Campbell says local unions needs their own media vehicle to deliver positive news about organized labor.

The site also delivers information on active labor campaigns. Campbell says one of the missions of the site is to educate elected leaders, members of the business community and the general public about how labor can work to turn this region around.
