Freelancers Plan One Hour Walkout At MTV Networks
December 10, 2007 at 6:11 AM (PT)
I want my 401(K)! That's the rallying cry of freelancers planning a walkout TODAY from MTV Networks, reports THE NEW YORK DAILY NEWS. The one-hour job action, from 3-4p, will protest a new contract that cuts or eliminates freelancers' health benefits and overtime pay.
The workers were told about the new terms last week when they arrived at the office to pick up their invitations to VIACOM's holiday party. Contract workers at MTVN will walk off the job at 3p, affecting MTV, NICKELODEON, COMEDY CENTRAL and SPIKE TV.
