Local 51 members at KQED have been represented by NABET for over 60 years in the work of producing radio and television (and associated workers).
They have been in bargaining for over 19 months, facing efforts to remove their work, and Union Busting in an effort to scare and intimidate our members into accepting an inferior contract.
Our members helped build KQED into the number one radio station in the Bay Area, and produced the television that used to make the Bay Area proud.
When we gave notice to terminate the contract extension – instead of focusing on their proposals and removing their union busting proposals from the table – KQED actively encouraged union members to resign from NABET-CWA – and asked if they planned to cross the picket-line.
We know that the community supports good working conditions and contracts and that Union Busting is not a Bay Area Value. We are asking you to add your voices to ours.
Please support our fight for a good contract – for good working conditions – and for good local television production at KQED.
Send a message to KQED President John Boland or call him at (415) 553-2201.
Keeping up the pressure, Local 51 members and supporters held a funeral march in front of the KQED Studios. MORE
