A major management/labor disconnect at KTVU --Fox wants to go the way of MMJ (Multi-Media journalist) has sparked talk of a strike at 2 Jack London Square. And strike talk amidst one of the busiest news and sports time locally in years: a walk-out, sick-out during Super Bowl week for coverage at KTVU on ALL levels of the unions.
SAG-AFTRA began negotiations with FOX last week. Word is that both sides are heavily "dug in" --meaning, short of a quick, face-saving compromise, the possibility of a work stoppage is very real.
Then again, both sides have much to lose in this endeavor should it all come to that. While the unions have all the leverage; more so than management, it is Fox that has all the deepest pockets.
Me thinks a settlement looms but so far both sides are talking tough.
We'll wait and see.
