Ask the NLRB about CNN!

Local 31 Members;
Here is a simple, easy and important call to make. You will be transferred to  the Chairman's office.  If there is no one available to answer the phone, you will be sent to voice mail where you can leave your message and your phone number so that they can get back to you.  This is very important  for our fellow NABETs who were wrongfully  discharged  from CNN.  Please  support them by making this call!
Fraternally, Rich McD

With a fully seated NLRB now in place, every NABET-CWA member needs to contact the office of NLRB Chairman Mark Gaston Pearce, at 202-273-1070. When you do, ask two simple questions;

“What is the status of the CNN case involving NABET-CWA and when will a final decision be issued?

Please report any response that you receive from the NLRB by e-mailing us at It is vitally important that you provide us with these reports so that we can track the volume of calls as well as any responses the NLRB provides to callers.  It is our hope that a louder chorus will deliver a message seemingly unheard to date. That message is, “A ten-year wait for justice is outrageous!”

NBC Payroll Glitch: Let us know if it effected you!

To: NBC NABET Represented Employees
From: Rich McDermott , President Local 31
Re: Payroll glitch

A payroll glitch affecting 1100 random employees of the Company occurred on Friday 1-10-14. Management, union and non-union employees from a variety of locations and unions were affected. The glitch resulted in people receiving two separate, but equal payroll payments, each representing exactly 1/2 of a normal payroll payment, but totaling a normal 2-week payment and deductions. NBC has asked that we bring any issues of which we become aware regarding this matter to the company’s’ attention so that they can get it resolved ASAP.
