WB’s labor talks stall

The 11-month contract negotiations between management and office employees at Warner Bros. have stalled.

The Warner Bros. Office Employees, a union that represents approximately 500 office workers, has twice rejected management’s offer for a new contract; the last pact expired in January.

Sources say the issues of contention include management’s proposal to cut the annual number of sick days from 10 to six.

The office workers also have rejected a 12% salary increase over a four-year period, at 3% a year.

At this point, there are no plans to strike, sources say.
