Unafraid of triskaidekaphobia, the National Labor Relations Board has scheduled an election on Friday, June 13th, on the Guild’s petition to become the exclusive bargaining agent for nonsupervisory news employees of Bay Area News Group-East Bay (Contra Costa Times, ANG papers). That’s according to an e-mail from President and Publisher John Armstrong which was confirmed by union leader Sara Steffens. The election will be by secret ballot. Those eligible to cast a ballot: All full-time and regular part-time nonsupervisory news division employees at BANG’s Alameda, Antioch, Hayward, Fremont, Tracy, Pleasanton, Oakland, Richmond, San Mateo and Walnut Creek locations.
