WBBM-Channel 2 web writers vote to join union

| No Comments

In a first for the Writers Guild of America East, web news writer/producers at WBBM-Channel 2 have voted unanimously to be represented by the Writers Guild East. These are the first news writer/producers working exclusively on web content to join the WGAE, the union that has long represented CBS News employees writing for television and radio. "This victory for web writers demonstrates that even in the digital age writers want the strength union representation provides," said WGAE executive director Lowell Peterson. "We voted to join the Guild because we want the stability and voice on the job that a union provides," added WBBM web writer Michael Ramsey. The Writers Guild of America East represents writers in motion pictures, television, cable, digital media and broadcast news.
