The Trial concluded on April 24 and we went to the RIPBS Board Meeting on May 2 to enlighten the Board Members about the unfair labor practices and anti worker atmosphere promoted by Local managers. In the weeks that followed it looked like we were going to reach a steelment with the Staiton but at the last minute, the Board Sub committee put an end to those negotiations. So we are back to a decision by the Administrative Law Judge. Briefs are due June 15 by both parties but we don't ewxpect to hear a decision byt the Judge until late summer at the earliest. In the meantime, we will be rolling out a public campaign against the Station Management and the  Foundation Board for not resloving the agregious situation. We will upddate you when things progress.

WBZ - CBS Boston

Layoffs of 7 members are slated to take place sometime in July as a result of all CBS Owned and Operated Master Controls being hubbed by a third party in Atlanta. A few of these workers may end up with opportunites at WCVB doing Master Control work. The WBZ Bargaining Unit has taken a big hit over the last decade due to CBS downsizing. We lost CBS radio this year as well. 

Congratulations to all of our members who won 2018 New England Emmy’s
