Call for interviews with freelance and contract media workers

Have you worked as a freelance or contract employee in digital journalism in Canada or the United States at any time between 2013 and 2017? Researcher Errol Salamon would like to hear about your experiences for a textbook on labour issues facing media workers in North America.

Salamon is a Canadian Media Guild freelance member, postdoctoral researcher/visiting scholar at the University of Pennsylvania, and contributing editor at J-Source. He’s interested in hearing about your daily work experiences and working conditions as a freelance or contract employee in digital journalism.

Your responses will be kept confidential and you can back out at any time. They will become part of a book-length account of the working conditions and labour issues facing media workers in North America, including interns, freelancers, and other digital media workers. This project is supported by CWA Canada, the Canadian Media Guild’s parent union. It aims to raise awareness about media workers’ rights and determine best practices for quality journalism in a digital age.

If you’re willing to be interviewed, you’re asked to complete this short introductory questionnaire and then you’ll be contacted to set up a time to talk.
