The PSC racked up five first-place and 13 total honors in the International Labor Communications Association 2016 Labor Media Awards. PSC staff, members and supporters were recognized for Best Photo Essay or Gallery, Best News Story, and Best Collateral from a Political Action/ Organizing Campaign. They also took home first-place Saul Miller Awards for writing about collective bargaining and organizing. Communications from the contract campaign accounted for most of the award-winning content, but awards also went to a member profile and a labor history. Second-place awards of general excellence for a union print publication and a single-issue publication went, respectively, to the union’s newspaper, Clarion, and to the PSC Social Safety Net Committee’s booklet Defending The Social Safety Net: A Call To Action.
