Unionized Oregon Public Broadcasting Workers Plan to Picket Over Wages Friday Morning

Workers at Oregon Public Broadcasting who are unionized with the Service Employees International Union Local 570 are holding a picket tomorrow morning in a demand for higher wages.

Workers plan to rally outside of the building at 7140 SW Macadam Ave. from 9:30 to 10:30 am tomorrow.

Unionized workers make up many divisions of OPB, including mail clerks, videographers and tech support. No reporters, producers or managers are in the union.

According to union release, workers are demanding a new contract before their current contract expires on Dec. 31. At a bargaining session with OPB management on Nov. 21, union president Ikesha Owens says executives passed a proposal to stop tracking and sharing the names of workers hired into the bargaining unit and to stop collecting dues for those workers.
