After 11 Years, CNN Techs Finally Get Justice

September 17, 2014

After 11 years, technicians working for a CNN subcontractor have received justice after the company initiated what Communications Workers of America called a "phony reorganization scheme to get rid of unionized workers." The National Labor Relations Board found overwhelming evidence that the news channel engaged in anti-union activity and that CNN was a joint employer of the technicians and subcontractor. CNN was ordered to rehire about 100 workers and compensate 200 others, with the total CNN has to pay expected to be tens of millions of dollars. Additionally, the channel is required to restore any bargaining unit work outsourced since previous contracts ended, recognize the employees' union, and begin bargaining with the two National Association of Broadcast Employees and Technicians locals that represent the workers.
