No Strike at NPR


That’s after a last-minute “tentative deal” was struck with SAG-AFTRA. Contract talks began April 27 and a federal mediator was called in. The contract expired on June 30 but was extended several times. Union leadership will recommend the deal to NPR staffers. Here’s a statement from NPR management…

“Both sides have been working over several months to reach this new, forward-looking agreement that meets the needs of NPR’s employees and operations. SAG-AFTRA members will have an opportunity to vote to ratify the agreement in the coming weeks. Both NPR and SAG-AFTRA look forward to working together in support of NPR’s mission and service to the American public.”
