SAG-AFTRA Announces Tentative Agreement at KOIT-FM in San Francisco

LOS ANGELES (May 30, 2014) --- SAG-AFTRA is pleased to announce that it has reached a tentative agreement with Entercom Communications Corporation for members at top-performing San Francisco radio station 96.5 KOIT. The agreement, which is subject to ratification, was reached after the union launched a Save Local Radio social media campaign "www.savelocalradio.org/koit" to support its members in their effort for an acceptable contract. On May 20, after a full day of intense negotiations and with the assistance of a federal mediator, the parties reached agreement on key terms that had previously stalled negotiations. The major provisions include 2 percent increases on a wage escalator for those currently working at the station; agreement for additional compensation prior to reuse of programming material outside of the market and payment for reuse of material post-termination; improvements on severance beyond company policy; and increasing part-timer rates of pay. If ratified, this will represent the first contract with Entercom for KOIT since the company acquired the station in 2008 and unilaterally imposed terms in 2010.SAG-AFTRA San Francisco-Northern California Local Executive Director Len Egert said of the agreement, “I commend this small group of committed members who remained united and resolved to achieve a fair contract despite a lengthy and difficult process. We look forward to working with Entercom and local management as we all move forward.”
