KPFA staff to picket Pacifica on April 4, as part of National Day of Action

KPFA’s workers are inviting listeners to join them for an informational picket on MONDAY, APRIL 4 from 7:30-8:30 AM at Pacifica’s offices, 1925 MLK Jr Way in Berkeley. April 4 is a national day of action to defend unions and bargaining rights.

KPFA’s community is concerned that over $30,000 of the station’s funds have been spent on anti-union lawyers. Pacifica still refuses to enter mediation, even after multiple resolutions by the cities of Berkeley and San Francisco, dozens of elected officials, and three labor councils.

Pacifica’s layoff of news anchor John Hamilton was averted yesterday at the last minute. Five union workers presented a plan to reduce their time by 22 hours a week and donate them so Hamilton could stay at his part-time job at no cost to KPFA except for his benefits. | MORE
