WGBH, Union Reach Contract Agreement
Noncommercial WGBH Boston and its largest union said Wednesday that they reached agreement on a contract similar to one imposed last year, after the union rejected it and managers declared that negotiations had come to an impasse.
The management of noncommercial WGBH Boston said yesterday that it has presented its last proposal for a new agreement with its largest union, halting contract talks that began in August. The station and the Association of Employees of the Educational Foundation have been seeking a new three-year contract to replace an agreement that expired at the end of October. WGBH employs 850 people; Local 1300 represents 280 writers, editors, production workers, and marketing employees.
