"Joey P. Talks Stormy D., One Night Only, Courtesy of IAPE"
May 17, 2018—Members in New York enjoyed a lively discussion and networking hour in the inaugural event of our Union Made Spotlight series. Wall Street Journal legal reporter and IAPE director Joe Palazzolo talked about his coverage of the Stormy Daniels story and of the Trump administration in a question-and-answer session with IAPE Vice President Mike Wursthorn.
Union members said they appreciated learning about the important work done at Dow Jones every day and enjoyed interacting with others in IAPE.
In an off-the-record setting, Joe took on a wide range of questions about his steady stream of scoops, the intricacies of working on sensitive stories and navigating different newsroom editors.
The event was organized by stewards Austen Hufford and Tom Corrigan.

Here are some topics we’ll discuss in the hour-long session we’re planning for May in Princeton and New York, with options for remote attendance.
+Handling disciplinary meetings
+How member concerns turn into workplace change
