Union Disclaims Interest In KHQA Quincy, IL
Sinclair Broadcast Group said it received notice from the International Chemical Workers Union (ICWU) disclaiming interest in representing employees that provide services to Sinclair’s CBS-ABC affiliate KHQA Quincy, Ill. (DMA 174).
Sinclair said that after representing employees for more than seven years, the ICWU notified the CBS affiliate that due to “a lack of interest from bargaining unit employees,” it will no longer represent the bargaining unit. The most recent contract covered three years ending Oct. 19.
Sharon Merrell, KHQA general manager, said: “We are grateful for the trust our people put in us and we believe this is the result of our culture, the benefits provided by Sinclair and the many opportunities we have within the company causing employees to see no value in a third party representing their interests.”
