Staffers at KCRW in Santa Monica, Calif., voted Friday to join the SAG-AFTRA union.
According to a SAG-AFTRA release, the bargaining unit will include more than 90 KCRW employees, “including DJs, hosts, producers, reporters, production engineers, board operators and others who create content for all areas of KCRW, including music and news radio programming, digital content, podcasts and live events.”
The employees announced their plans to join SAG-AFTRA earlier this month.
“We are excited to officially be recognized as a union at KCRW,” said KCRW producer Avishay Artsy in the release. “Our staff has united around this organizing effort and we are looking forward to sitting down with management and negotiating a contract that will be fair for all.”
“We look forward to creating an even better work environment with our employees and SAG-AFTRA in order to continue to serve the community with the highest quality programming,” said KCRW President Jennifer Ferro.
