Solidarity Meeting-Defend Labor Rights At KPFA
Stop Union Busting-Defend Flashpoints Staff
Activist Programming Threatened!
February 3, 2010 Wed 7:00 PM
522 Valencia St./16th St. San Francisco, CA
KPFA management has flagrantly violated the CWA 9415 union contract at radio station KPFA by cutting the hours of Flashpoints staff without regard to the union contract. Nora Barrows-Friedman had her hours cut 50% despite the fact that she has more seniority than many other employees. In fact Assistant Manager Amelia Gonzalez admitted that they had ignored the contract in layoffs and were consulting the union after the fact. Is this how management operates at KPFA?
Panelists will also discuss how KPFA and Pacifica can again become an activist news and information portal for the community in these critical times.
