Cnn Agrees to Record $76m Settlement over Labor Dispute

ATLANTA, GA (AP) — CNN has agreed to pay $76 million in backpay as part of a record settlement with the federal labor board after the TV network terminated the contracts of unionized camera operators in 2003. In a statement Friday, the National Labor Relations Board says the settlement is the “largest monetary remedy” in the agency’s 85-year history. Officials say the settlement will benefit more than 300 people. The NLRB said CNN ended its contract with a unionized subcontractor, Team Video Services, and then replaced the workers with new employees “without recognizing or bargaining with the two unions that had represented the TVS employees.”
