Labor Disputes at WJLA, Post Heat Up

There’s always some sort of labor dispute going on in the Washington media world, but it looks like two labor disputes in the city might be heating up somewhat. Yesterday in the Express, NABET-CWA Local 31 announced the start of a boycott of local ABC affiliates WJLA and NewsChannel 8, DCist reports. And the CWA also recently ran a three-quarter page ad in the WSJ pointing out the ongoing plight of the Washington Post’s mailroom employees, who have been 3 and a 1/2 years without a raise.

WJLA has pulled a little fast one on the union it’s battling, whose website is Turn7Off.com. The station or an ally has purchased TurnOff7.com and redirected back to their regular news website.
