Talks Begin Thursday In Philadelphia


According to a statement put out by SAG-AFTRA, bargaining between the union and Entercom begins Thursday at KYW-AM in Philadelphia. Thursday’s talks are being overseen by a federal mediator, and according to the union this is the first session of this stage of negotiations. Here’s SAG-AFTRA’s full statement:

“The SAG-AFTRA National Board was disappointed to learn during its April 13-14 plenary meeting of the significant contract concessions proposed by Entercom for employees at some of the most successful and well-respected radio stations in the country. The Board proudly stands with our SAG-AFTRA colleagues who work for Entercom, and are wholeheartedly behind their bargaining teams’ efforts to protect their working conditions while helping lead the digital revolution in radio. When Entercom purchased the CBS Radio stations in 2017, it acquired a rich legacy with dedicated employees committed to their work and to being a part of the future of the radio industry. Now, nearly all SAG-AFTRA-represented Entercom radio stations are bargaining for the first time with their new employer. They deserve a fair contract.”
