Producers, PA's among America East additions

Segment producers and production assistants at WNYW-TV’s “Good Day New York” have voted 5-1 to join the Writers Guild of America East.

The new bargaining unit has six members who work on the station’s two “Good Day New York” broadcasts covering four hours of morning programming.

The WGA said it will work with management to secure dates for contract negotiations.

The guild noted that it currently covers news staff at WNYW-TV and that “Good Day” was the only non-union show at the station. The shows’ anchors and reporters are covered by AFTRA and its editing and technical staff are under IATSE jurisdiction.
