The parties agreed to extend the Master Agreement for an additional three months, with the expiration date moving to June 30, 2022.
Bargaining between NABET-CWA and ABC resumed in New York City on Monday, March 14, for the fifth round of talks.
Topics of this week’s discussion were: wages, daily hire to staff conversions, PILOB, 401k contribution increases, daily hire travel-only days, newswriters and KGO engineers, child bonding leave, and the Juneteenth holiday.
The Union responded to the Company’s proposals by countering a number of items and addressing all economic and non-economic proposals.
Over the course of four months and multiple bargaining sessions, the Company’s negotiating team appears to hear our words, but responds largely with indifference to our message.
