Employees’ rep

IATSE, which has more than 100,000 members, also won the right to represent employees in collective bargaining with Pittsburgh public television station WQED.

The National Labor Relations Board election gave unanimous support to the union, with IATSE Local 489 selected as collective bargaining agents.

IATSE said the station, credited with production of “Mister Rogers” and early National Geographic specials, began cutting back on production several years ago and reduced employee hours along with health and pension benefits.
