Strike two for CBS?


CBS, along with the other networks and studios, is being struck by the members of the Writers Guild of America (WGA) who write show scripts. But a second WGA strike could hit the Eye Network before the month is out. CBS News writers in a separate WGA bargaining unit will be voting November 15th on whether to authorize union leaders to call a strike. The news writers have been working without a contract in place for two and a half years and voted a year ago to reject the last contract offer from CBS. If there is a news writers strike as well, it would affect all of the network programming produced by CBS News as well as local news operations at the CBS O&Os in New York, LA and Chicago.
