Fresno Staffers Vote to Keep Union

Back on July 7th, FTVLive told you that Nexstar was doing their best to bust the IBEW and SAG-AFTRA union at KSEE/KGPE in Fresno (recently purchased duopoly).

Represented staff at the stations voted on July 11th to decide whether or not that still wanted to be represented by the IBEW union.

Station GM Matt Rosenfeld had been sending out a number of memos to the staff, trying to tell them why they don't need a union. 

But, the votes are in and counted and the staffers voted to keep the union.

The SAG-AFTRA vote is expected to happen soon.

The Nexstar suits are not happy about the loss in the first vote.
