"SaveKPFA" again puts its members jobs before the survival of KPFA/Pacifica
Richard Phelps, former Chair KPFA LSB
At yesterday's Pacifica National Board meeting in Berkeley "SaveKPFA" leaders spoke of the importance of not having layoffs at KPFA, ignoring the financial crisis as they did in the past when they put their low seniority members jobs over the survival of KPFA/Pacifica. If it were Dennis Bernstein or Miguel Molina that was likely to get laid off "SaveKPFA" wouldn't be there arguing against layoffs. These were the same folks that didn't say one word when their favorite GM refused to recognize the Unpaid Staff Organization. The history below raises the question: is "SaveKPFA" trying to do what's best for KPFA/Pacifica or are they just power hungry opportunists?
