FCC duo to meet CBS scribes

Guild has reported little progress in recent negotiations

FCC commissioners Jonathan Adelstein and Michael Copps will meet with CBS employees repped by the Writers Guild of America to discuss issues of news quality that have arisen from stalled contract negotiations between the net and the guild.

Meeting, set for Thursday in Los Angeles, comes three weeks after three members of Congress notified the FCC they were “troubled” by CBS proposals to seek authority to remove news producers from the bargaining unit, merge newsrooms of competing stations and terminate employees in the event of mergers.

Guild has reported little progress in its most recent negotiations on Aug. 17-18 with CBS covering 500 newswriters, editors, assistants, graphic artists and researchers. The WGA noted that 38 regularly scheduled temporary employees at KCAL/KCBS-TV were recently taken off the schedule with little or no notice.

Negotiations began in April 2005. Stations covered by the pact include WCBS-TV, WBBM-AM, KNX-AM, KFWB-AM, KCAL-TV and KCBS-TV.
