Cumulus WMAL Extension Agreement for January 2015 through January 2018 (.doc)

NABET-CWA and Cumulus Media have reached a tentative agrement.

July 10, 2015

In a secret mail in ballot, the January 6, 2015 through January 5, 2018 Extension Agreement was ratified today. Ratification ballots were counted in the offices of Local 16 in New York City, Local 31 in Lanham, MD and Local 51 in San Francisco, CA.

The new Extension Agreement contains a ratification bonus of $500 to eligible full-time employees and $250 to eligible part-time employees. This bonus money will be paid within thirty days of today’s ratification.
Throughout these extremely difficult negotiations, Union negotiators kept fighting off drastic Company proposals aimed at gutting wages, vacation entitlements and other benefits that our members have enjoyed throughout their employment with ABC Radio, Citadel Broadcasting and finally Cumulus Media.
Your Negotiating Committee wishes to thank each of you for your support, patience and dedication during this very protracted process.

In Unity,
Negotiating Committee
