BREAKING NEWS

HISTORY IS MADE IN NEW ENGLAND BROADCASTING

Congratulations! The agreement between IBEW Local 1228 and Program Productions, Inc. was ratified by 84% in favor of the Contract. 71 % of the  eligible people voted.  We now have the first Collective Bargaining Agreement in the history of Broadcast Sports freelance Technicians in New England. 

Thanks to all the hard work over the last year of meetings, conference calls, emails and discussions, we have established fair wages, benefits and conditions for everybody.  While the process has seemed long, the end result was worth it.
 
Over the next few weeks, the eligible voters will receive addition information on membership, the Entertainment Industry Flex health plan and 401 (k).  In the meantime, if you have any questions please contact any one of us or Business Manager Fletcher Fischer at fletcher@ibew1228.org or (860) 281-4185.

We hope that you and your family enjoy the holidays and have a happy and healthy New Year.

In Solidarity,
Your Contract Committee,
