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.

Initial Speakers:
Jack Heyman, ILWU Local 10
Riva Enteen, Past Chair KPFA Local Station Board
JR Valrey, The Minister Of Information JR Valrey
Ann Garrison, Independent Journalist/Peace and Social Justice Activist

Dennis Bernstein, Producer KPFA Flashpoints
Solidarity Music By “The Funky Nixons” and others
