Fox plays hardball with KTVU IBEW/Local 45...this is the union representing the technical workers who work behind the scenes at Channel 2, (where it takes over ownership in the fall)--as you could imagine, there's considerable angst and a lot of nervous people.
A longtime tech staffer just sent me this memo:
Our union rep at Local IBEW 45, tells us that Fox Network has let the union know that while they recognize the union, they do not recognize the contract that IBEW has negotiated on behalf of the current staff. Not sure what this brings down the road, but it is not going to be a rosy transition if this is the first shot fired across the deck.
This is going to get ugly, folks.
