KTLA’s Rebecca Hall Files Complaint Against SAG-AFTRA

KTLA‘s Rebecca Hall has filed an unfair labor practice complaint against SAG-AFTRA, Hollywood’s largest entertainment union, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Hall, who is a reporter and weekend sports anchor at KTLA, filed the complaint Wednesday with the National Labor Relations Board. In the filing, Halls says the union demanded she pay “excessive” initiation fees and union dues if she wanted to keep working at KTLA, Tribune’s CW affiliate in Los Angeles.

Hall’s complaint was filed with the help of attorneys from the National Right to Work Foundation, the L.A. Times reports:

“Instead of informing Ms. Hall of her workplace rights, SAG bosses threatened to have her fired for refusing to join their union and pay full dues,” Mark Mix, president of the National Right to Work Foundation, said in a statement. “That’s unacceptable, which is why we’re helping her fight back against these heavy-handed tactics.”

In a statement, SAG-AFTRA disputed the claims. “SAG-AFTRA denies these allegations, which are completely without merit,” the union said. “The NLRB is reviewing this and we look forward to the speedy disposition of the charge.”

KTLA’s Rebecca Hall Swears on Air, Meant to say ‘Stuff’

KTLA 5 sports anchor Rebecca Hall is telling it like it is.

Last night on the news, Hall reported on Los Angeles Dodgers announcer Vin Scully staying with the team. After listing his accomplishments of the last 60 years, Hall joked, “Come on Vin, get your shit together, that’s all you got?”

She meant to say “stuff.”

KTLA’s morning show had a little fun with Hall’s shit-step, producing a video (screengrab left) showing Ginger Chan berating someone on the floor crew and cussing up a storm about traffic on the 405.
