NBC-Nabet: Down To One Unit

The NABET/NBC/G.E. negotiating committee reported Feb. 8 that three out of four dissenting units ratified NBC’s proposal for a new contract.

NABET requires that all of its 12 units approve the contract before it can be considered ratified. NABET members two weeks ago had voted in favor of ratification of NBC’s modified offer by a 21/2 to 1 margin. Nonetheless, the contract represents 12 smaller deals with the union’s 12 units, and four had dissented.

The union will attempt to schedule talks with NBC to discuss the remaining contract – concerning the New York-based Air Conditioning unit – this week.

Back in 1987, after a 17-week strike by the union, one smaller unit rejected the contract. In that case, NBC negotiated with the unit for about a day-and-a-half, before telling the union no changes would be made. Union leaders then put the deal up for a revote and the contract was approved.

NABET represents more than 2,300 members who work as news writers, couriers, mail messengers and other technicians at NBC’s various locations. They have been working without a contract since March, although NBC implemented its final offer in mid-August.
