Voice Media Group
This week, workers at sister publications Miami New Times (TNG-CWA Local 3108) and Phoenix New Times (TNG-CWA Local 39213), owned by Denver-based Voice Media Group, successfully ratified their first contracts after almost a year of bargaining. The contracts secure numerous hard-fought workplace protections and enhanced employee benefits.
Last Monday, NABET-CWA’s Network Negotiating Committee opened negotiations with ABC at the company’s headquarters in New York City. Priority issues for the members include expansion of paid sick days, conversion of daily hires into permanent employees, and improvement of benefits, pay, and working conditions for hundreds of engineers, technicians, graphic artists, and other employees.
