CBS News Writers Strike Vote Set For Thursday
November 13, 2007 at 12:11 PM (PT)
Members of the WRITERS GUILD OF AMERICA EAST at CBS NEWS will vote THURSDAY (11/15) on whether to authorize a strike against the network's TV and radio news divisions. A yes vote will not necessarily mean an immediate walkout but would set the stage for a strike at any time.
As previously reported, the employees, who include news writers and editors and other staffers, have been without a contact since APRIL, 2005 and talks have been stalled since last NOVEMBER, when the union overwhelmingly rejected CBS' last offer. No talks have been held since JANUARY 8th.
