NABET-CWA Local 51, which represents most of the employees at KQED Channel 9, is in a contract dispute with management over health insurance costs. The union says its members pay twice what management pays for health care, and that the station has created a two-tier health care program that reduces benefits for new employees. So, until the dispute is resolved, NABET is asking those who contribute to the Channel 9 pledge drive to send their funds to an account at a bank address given on the graphic above. The union is also asking people to contact management.
