After watching the attacks on workers taking place across the country, it is time to stand up to the union-busters in California. McGraw-Hill-owned KGTV Channel 10 in San Diego refuses to negotiate a fair contract with employees for the fifth year. They have actively engaged in union-busting campaigns and employee intimation.
The San Diego & Imperial Counties Labor Council and the California Labor Federation have held an advertising and consumer boycott of KGTV Channel 10 News for several years. Despite their drop in ratings and millions in lost ad revenue, KGTV has launched further attacks against the workers, represented by NABET-CWA Local 54. While the boycott has been extremely successful, it is time to advance the campaign and take it to the next level.
May is an important month for television ratings, and we would like to take this opportunity to remind San Diegans to Turn Off 10! Please tell your friends, family and neighbors.
In addition to the ongoing consumer boycott, the Labor Council is also asking everyone to please refrain from appearing on or speaking to Channel 10 News during the month of May.
