IBEW Local 1212 needs your voices! Local 1212 has a collective bargaining agreement covering employees working for CBS News. In the early days of the pandemic, the union exhibited tremendous flexibility while CBS News tried to figure out the new normal.
Yet months later, after layoffs impacting IBEW members, and despite the many grievances the union has filed, CBS News continues to violate the collective bargaining agreement by using non-union camera crews and third-party vendors to conduct interviews for their news programs including “CBS This Morning” and “Face the Nation.”
Take Action by calling CBS News Vice President of Operations Rick Jefferson at 212-975-8517 and tell him that CBS News must respect workers and let IBEW technicians do their jobs!
