Members of the Broadcast Steering Committee met at the SAG-AFTRA New York office on Dec. 7 for an update on organizing efforts, negotiations and disputes with employers.
The meeting was led by BSC Chair Joe Krebs and Vice Chair Cheri Preston, who welcomed broadcast professionals from locals nationwide, congratulated newly-elected Vice President, Broadcasters Bob Butler and thanked outgoing Vice President Catherine Brown.
In addition to a panel on producing and negotiating contracts for podcasts, members of the BSC also celebrated the union election victory of WHYY in Philadelphia with two lead organizers from the bargaining unit.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the March BSC meeting was canceled and its next meeting will be held by video conference on June 20.
