Comcast Facing Another Obstacle in WGA Dispute: Part 2

Cable giant Comcast is hoping to have its $30 billion merger with NBC Universal approved by the FCC and Justice Department antitrust regulators by early next year. The deal has faced criticism and skepticism from media watchdog and consumer groups. Comcast has always said that the merger will be good for consumers. Now, as reported in the previous post, Comcast is facing more challenges from the Writers Guild of America.

According to the Los Angeles Times, last Wednesday, the WGA announced that the majority of writers on cable networks E!, Style and G4 voted for union representation. The Los Angeles city council president monitored and certified the voting process. The WGA said that the writers voted 46-1 to be represented in employment contract negotiations.

Comcast has called the vote a poll that does not have legal standing. Comcast has said that any vote should be supervised by the National Labor Relations Board. According to the Times, the WGA, which has opposed the merger deal, has called Comcast's insistence on an NLRB-monitored vote a stall tactic. For their part, Comcast said to the WGA that if they are sure of Comcast writers' wishes, they should be glad to call for an NLRB vote.

Hi! I could have sworn I've visited your blog before but after looking at many of the articles I realized it's new to me.

Regardless, I'm certainly happy I stumbled upon it and I'll be book-marking it and checking back regularly!
