Members of NABET-CWA Local 31 have won one of the largest back pay settlements in the 84-year history of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). The settlement negotiated by NABET-CWA, Local 31 and Local 11 (New York) requires CNN America to pay a total of $76 million to hundreds of broadcast technicians who were fired in 2004 when CNN terminated its subcontract with union-represented employees at Team Video Services (TVS). “After more than 15 years, this settlement agreement finally delivers justice for workers who experienced serious hardship in their lives due to CNN’s union-busting practices,” said NABET-CWA President Charlie Braico. “This incredible settlement in workers’ favor should send a very clear message to CNN and to other employers that union-busting is illegal and has consequences.”
