Union No Longer Repping WICS Employees
Sinclair Broadcast Group said Thursday that International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union Number 51 is no longer representing Sinclair employees at its ABC affiliate WICS Springfield, Ill. (DMA 88).
The union had represented six employees until its contract expired on Nov. 15.
“At Sinclair, employees are our most valuable asset. We are pleased that as an employer of choice in Springfield we will have the opportunity to deal with our employees directly rather than through a third party,” said Rick Lipps, WICS general manager. “We remain strongly committed to providing employees with robust benefits, competitive compensation and many opportunities for growth.”
