Union Busting Weasels

Turn off CBS 6: That's the rallying cry of union workers at WRGB who are on the job without a contract. I've never needed much encouragement to turn off CBS 6, but I'm not really the target of NABET's campaign.
This is still an area with a heavy union presence ---whether that gets people to skip CSI or not watch any football on Sunday remains to be seen. As for advertisers, salespeople don't like to go on a call and have the conversation be about the problems at their station.
At least one advertiser has said he's turning off CBS 6: Jerry Jennings. The mayor said he won't run any ads on WRGB until they play fair with NABET.
