Here's a press release I received yesterday:
Award winning broadcast journalists and employees at WWJ rewarded with take aways totaling over a million dollars.
Just days before winning the coveted Michigan Association of Broadcasters (MAB) Station of the Year award, broadcast journalists and employees were shocked to see economic takeaways at the bargaining table. WWJ Newsradio 950 has long been one of the most profitable stations in the Detroit market, consistently finishing in the market's top three stations in Arbitron ratings. Negotiations are stalled over health care and working conditions.
So, although award winning broadcast journalists and employees can see the accolades of their hard work in the form of beautiful hardware from the MAB in the vestibule of their workplace, WWJ management shows their thanks by continuing to bargain economic take backs. A sad day for great broadcast journalists.
Looks like there just might be an interesting labor battle brewing in Motown....
