HEALTH CARE DISPUTE CONTINUES
AT NORTHERN CALIFORNIA PUBLIC BROADCSTING'S KQED
San Francisco, CA
Since April KQED has institued a two tier health care system in which employees are being forced to pay more for their health care than their managers. Several people have had to switch to plans that did not include their doctors of many years and at least two were forced to eliminate their health care coverage entirely. NABET/CWA Local 51 covers 10 categories of empoyees from technicians and annoucers to those who work in the mail room, and building services.
In an appeal to supporters of KQED -- NORTHERN CALIFORNIA PUBLIC BROADCSTING'S (NCPB) flagship radio and TV stations -- NABET/CWA Local 51 continued to urge KQED members to put their pledges into an escrow account until the health care dispute between KQED & NABET is settled.
Concerned members of the community are urged to call KQED and let them know this two-tier healthcare is not acceptable at your public broadcasting station. Jeff Clarke, President and CEO of KQED can be reached at (415) 553-2201 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
