Labor Pains

It's WRGB's turn to be under the union spotlight, and in a town like this, that can be a very hot place.
NABET's contract with CBS 6 expired in June, and since then, the station's union employees have been working under an extension that expires this weekend. Will there be a strike? Probably not, but if you remember the last strike at WRGB, you know that a walkout would result in some fabulously bad television ---it's also unlikely that there will be a lockout by station management. Maybe NABET and WRGB management will come to terms when they meet today ---but if not expect some anti-CBS 6 activity at Saturday's Labor Parade in Albany, as well as other union PR efforts tageting the viewers and advertisers.
