Unions, NPR Negotiate As Contract Expiration Looms
March 31, 2015 at 4:10 AM (PT)
Negotiations between NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO and the unions representing its staffers, NABET-CWA and SAG-AFTRA, are still in progress but with the present contract expiring on WEDNESDAY (4/1), the unions have been drawing attention to the issues under negotiation with rallies and other protests.
Last week, NABET-CWA said on its website, the unions held a rally in front of NPR's headquarters in WASHINGTON, and some employees wore red to work to show solidarity with the unions. A petition signed by over 125 employees was also assembled.
The unions and network are at odds over health care and vacation issues and work jurisdiction matters.
