KPCC Staffers Ratify First SAG-AFTRA Contract

Staffers at Pasadena-based radio station KPCC have ratified their first-ever contract with management at Southern California Public Radio.

SAG-AFTRA, which represents the staff, made the announcement Friday. The three-year contract covers more than 70 reporters, newscasters, journalists and other representatives who work for KPCC both on the air and over the web.

“I’d like to acknowledge the unrelenting commitment and the continuous presence of KPCC news staff throughout the negotiations process,” said SAG-AFTRA’s Anna Calderon, who served as chief negotiator for the staff. “They were the backbone of these negotiations and it was a pleasure to work with them in getting a fair contract with SCPR.”

Terms of the contract include a guaranteed wage increase compounding to 5.6%  over the three years, protection and enhanced scales for job titles and descriptions, compensatory time, severance pay based on years in service and benefits that cover medical, dental and disability treatments.

“I want to commend the KPCC member negotiating committee and the SAG-AFTRA staff for their tireless work and dedication to creating a fair contract for all the station employees covered by this contract,” said chief broadcast officer Mary Cavallaro. “We have created a foundation for these public media professionals to have a say in the quality of their work.”

SAG-AFTRA’s organizing campaign began in 2012 and negotiations for the contract commenced in April, 2013.
