On Friday evening March 30, NABET-CWA and ABC, Inc. negotiators concluded a scheduled round of bargaining, following four days of meetings.
While both parties approached this round of bargaining with the shared goal of reaching an overall tentative agreement, a successor to the expired Master Agreement has not yet been agreed upon.
The Company remained focused on major elements of their previous packages while the Union offered alternatives and counterproposals in several critical and unresolved areas. The parties are still negotiating over open issues such as ENG/EFP digital camera usage, wages and pension.
The parties have tentatively agreed to meet again in Los Angeles during late April. We will keep you posted with the latest information and developments.
The Union Bargaining Committee reminds members to ignore all rumors. All official negotiation and mobilization information will be delivered on the Sector website (www.nabetcwa.org), on Local websites, hotlines, and e-mail lists.
