WGBH Boston Says Offer To Union Is Final

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.
