Local 51/Portland:

On January 12, NABET-CWA-represented Assignment Desk Editor Christopher Reaves returned to his job at KOIN-TV in Portland, Oregon. Thrilled to have him back on the assignment desk, Reaves’ NABET-CWA brothers and sisters greeted him with a “Welcome Back, Christopher!” cake. Reaves was fired in October 2015, and in December 2016, arbitrator Howard Gaba entirely overruled the Company. His award ruled that KOIN-TV had wrongfully discharged him and ordered him back to work with 16 months back pay, including compensation for all lost benefits. Local Portland attorney Gene Mechanic represented Local 51.
