WESA, WYEP content staff announce intention to unionize with SAG-AFTRA | Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The folks behind some of Pittsburgh’s most prominent radio offerings just announced their plan to unionize.

Earlier Tuesday, the content staff at Pittsburgh Community Broadcasting Corporation — the nonprofit organization that owns both 90.5 WESA, Pittsburgh’s NPR affiliate, and 91.3 WYEP, an independent music station — delivered a petition to management that a supermajority of eligible staff had signed declaring their intention to form a union, according to a SAG-AFTRA press release.

“We will approach this process in the spirit of collaboration and professionalism and urge PCBC leadership to do the same by voluntarily recognizing the union and begin bargaining in good faith with us,” the content staff’s organizing committee said via that press release.

“As a union town, Pittsburgh’s public radio stations should be union shops.”
