AFTRA covers CBS3.com

Web staffers added to union

HOLLYWOOD — AFTRA has organized the employees at CBS3.com in Philadelphia — among the first website workers at a local owned-and-operated station to be covered by an AFTRA contract.

The American Federation of Television & Radio Artists said employees had voted Wednesday to make AFTRA their collective bargaining representative.

The union said the five newly AFTRA-covered employees will join the 70 or so existing on- and off-air AFTRA-covered news staff at KYW-TV CBS3, which includes reporters, anchors, writers and producers.

Neil Rattigan, CBS3’s shop steward, said, “Since much of our work is repurposed on CBS3.com, it’s logical to have Web staffers as part of our union.”
