Boston Globe: Union seeks to represent tech workers at Fox 25

March 14, 2008 09:17 AM

IBEW Local 1228 of Norwood said that a majority of technical workers at the Fox 25 television station has asked the union to be their bargaining representative.

IBEW Local 1228 said it sent and faxed a letter dated March 10 to station general manager Gregg Kelly asking the station to "voluntarily recognize" the union as the workers' bargaining representative but has received no reply.

Fox 25 said in a statement, "We have received the letter, and we are reviewing it. We are and will continue to follow the National Labor Relations Board rules pertaining to the subject."

IBEW Local 1228 said it has also filed a petition for representation with National Labor Relations Board.

The union added that it seeks to represent about 90 technical employees at Fox 25 who are responsible for shooting, editing, production, and engineering local news and programming as well as the maintenance of the station's equipment.
