[SDCPJ] This month, be sure to Turn Off 10News!


 

After watching the attacks on workers taking place across the country, it is time to stand up to the union busters in our own community. McGraw-Hill-owned KGTV Channel 10 refuses to negotiate a fair contract with employees for the fifth year. They have actively engaged in union-busting campaigns and employee intimidation.


The Labor Council has held an advertising and consumer boycott of KGTV Channel 10 News for several years. Despite their drop in ratings and loss of ad revenue, KGTV has launched further attacks against the workers, represented by NABET CWA Local 54. While the boycott has been extremely successful, it is time to advance the campaign and take it to the next level.


May is an important month for television ratings and we would like to take this opportunity to remind you to Turn Off 10! Please ask your family, friends, and neighbors to join you in supporting the members of Local 54 and urge them not to watch Channel 10 News.

In addition to the ongoing consumer boycott, please refrain from appearing on or speaking to Channel 10 News during the month of May.


To learn more about the campaign to Turn Off 10 and the union-busting activities of McGraw-Hill-owned KGTV Channel 10, visit
www.10NewsUnfair.com. And if you are on Facebook, please "Like" our Turn Off 10 page and share with your friends to help spread the word.


Your support for these workers and their right to a fair contract is invaluable. Thank you!

In solidarity,


Lorena Gonzalez

Secretary-Treasurer/CEO, San Diego & Imperial Counties Labor Council
