CBS to employees: Don't honor strike!

    CBS news writers are apparently one step closer to a strike of their own, and the network is courting all scabs and picket-line crossers.


    CBS sent out a letter to employees — the network says about 200 workers are affected; the union says about 500 are — blaming the union for turning down more than 100 potential negotiating dates. The two sides have met just once in the last year. The letter encouraged guild members to consider working even if a strike was declared. In a statement, CBS said it was prepared for a strike and would continue to produce “quality news programming.”

    In its letter, CBS said it was offering about a 3 percent raise to television employees and 2 percent to local radio employees. Ms. Goldman said the figures were 2.2 percent and 1.48 percent. The employees have not had a raise in almost three years.
