MCT adding insult to injury
Six months later, workers at Montgomery Community Television still don’t have a contract, reports NABET-CWA Local 31 negotiator Barbara Krieger. As reported previously in Union City, the workers haven’t had a raise in five years and after the union charged MCT with refusing to bargain -- the current contract expired June 30, 2018 -- company finally submitted new proposals in late April. Now, Krieger reports. “MCT is refusing retro pay back to 2018, and in this Covid environment they want to remove access to any health compensation for the majority of their workforce!” Also, she adds, “one of their offers is to reduce pay to several employees via a condensed pay scale. The union is attempting to right the cart by continuing talks and ignoring this despicable and insulting “Last” offer! We need a decent contract now!”
