Hey Chicago! You’ve got a few great things going for you: Old Style, deep dish pizza… and a thriving freelance community. We’re interested in getting to know that last one a bit better. And we’ve got a few gifts to help break the ice.
From now until July 11, any new Freelancers Union member who lives in Illinois is going to get a free gift, and we’re giving away 10 VIP passes to the Pitchfork Music Festival! Yes, that’s right, the indie-est music event of the year, taking place July 15 – 17. The VIP passes are so exclusive that they aren’t even available for sale…but you can win them through us for free.Any Illinois member is eligible to win the tickets: just follow us on Twitter, and tweet this post with @freelancersu included in the tweet. (Feel free to read the fine print.) We’ll pick 5 winners at random over the next few weeks, each of whom will get 2 tickets. Spread the word throughout the Indy City!Freelancers Union is building tools to support and protect independent workers, and we can’t do it without the involvement of our members. The more members we have, the more successful we are in making positive changes that impact the lives of freelancers, consultants, temps, part-timers, contractors, and the self-employed—30% of the U.S. workforce. As a large group with shared interests, we’re stronger together than we are on our own, and we’re better able to build solutions to get our needs met.So join us in our goal to build a new social support system for the new mobile workforce…and maybe get VIP Pitchfork passes in the process.
