SUPPORT THE WORKERS AT KOIN TV!!

Take Note:

We are NABET-CWA 51 workers at KOIN TV channel six in Portland.  We are photographers, editors, web producers, engineers, commercial production, directors and assignment editors. 

Our station was bought 2 years ago by Nexstar, which is a corporation out of Texas. With the upcoming purchase of Tribune Media, they will be the largest ownership group in the US. 

We have been negotiating with Nexstar for two years. They came to the table with 47 proposals, including an open shop, 10 bucks per month per worker to process dues, cuts to our overtime provisions, Holidays, and personal days. Health care premiums on a sliding scale, (the more you make the more you pay,) and that all provisions are subject to change at any time, nothing locked in. 

Needless to say, we believe their goal is to bust the union.

We are asking for community support. Here is a link to our on-line petition.
