NLRB To Hear Washington Post Radio Complaint
October 22, 2007 at 5:25 AM (PT)
The NATIONAL LABOR RELATIONS BOARD has set a hearing for TUESDAY on the outstanding NEWSPAPER GUILD complaint over the WASHINGTON POST's use of its reporters on the now-defunct WASHINGTON POST RADIO.
EDITOR AND PUBLISHER reports that NLRB Regional Dir. WAYNE GOLD told it that the POST "imposed changes to work duties on employees without bargaining and failed to provide information regarding it. It comes down to imposing additional duties without bargaining with the unit." The complaint, and another over sales employees having to sell ads in the local print edition of humor newspaper THE ONION, is seeking back pay and interest for the additional work.
WASHINGTON POST RADIO aired on BONNEVILLE's WTWP-A-F from MARCH 2006 through SEPTEMBER of this year before flipping to a conventional Talk format as WWWT-A-F (3WT).
