NLRB Orders SBS to Comply with Settlement Agreement

SAG-AFTRA has announced that the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) Region 31 office has ordered Spanish Broadcasting System (SBS) to comply in part by November 29 with a settlement agreement in connection with a series of labor practices. In a release, SAG-AFTRA says that over the past three years, the NLRB has issued two complaints against SBS for its bargaining and retaliation for union activity.

In 2016, air talent at SBS's KLAX-FM and KXOL-FM/Los Angeles voted for SAG-AFTRA to represent them, making them the first unionized Spanish-language radio stations in the market. In 2018, SBS's WLEY-FM (La Ley)/Chicago also voted to join SAG-AFTRA, but so far has not reached a deal.

"We'd like to thank the NLRB for seeing SBS's bad-faith bargaining for what it is and for requiring them to do the right thing: Comply and bargain in good faith," said SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris. "We will continue to fight on behalf of our members for a fair first contract and will not rest until we have an agreement that is just."

SAG-AFTRA National Executive Director David White added that SBS continues to tout its excellent ratings and revenue growth within the Hispanic media markets, "it proposes double-digit wage decreases for its on-air talent. Our members are key to the company's growth and deserve respect and dignity in the work place."
