    It alleges that unfair labor practices came into play for KXOL and KLAX

     

    Region 31 of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) in Los Angeles will move forward with a formal complaint on unfair labor practice charges filed by SAG-AFTRA against Spanish Broadcasting System (SBS), owner of Regional Mexican KLAX (97.9 LA RAZA) and KXOL (Mega 96.3) Los Angeles. The NLRB — the governmental agency handling unfair labor practices — authorized issuance of a formal complaint against SBS alleging violations of the National Labor Relations Act.

    The union alleges that “SBS unlawfully fired seven of its unionized employees (25% of the workforce) in retaliation for their union activities, in an effort to decimate the Union and unlawfully failed to give SAG-AFTRA an opportunity to bargain about the terminations.” It also alleges the SBS “used a long litany of bad faith bargaining tactics.”

    Additionally, SAG-AFTRA has requested that the “NLRB quickly issue the complaint, set a quick trial date, and go into federal district court to obtain an injunction to get the terminated employees back to work immediately and bring this lawless employer to justice.”

    SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris said, “The National Labor Relations Board’s findings underscore what we have been saying all along: For nearly a year, SBS has failed to negotiate a fair contract with the union, and refuses to engage in good faith bargaining over economics, including wages. SBS’s blatant disregard for workers’ rights cannot and will not be tolerated. I want to thank all of the SAG-AFTRA members who stepped up and spoke up. Their passion for justice and their voices are an important part in this fight.”
