NABET 41 Takes On Disney/ABC


After working without a contract since April 1, 2007, NABET Local 41 newsgathering crews, editors and some producers held a protest in front of ABC Channel 7 studios in Chicago on August 15. Disney, which owns ABC, is trying to freeze the pension plan, dismantle the seniority system, offer wages less than COL, and other anti-worker measures.
