4-2-2020 Sinclair Broadcasting employees need our help
In a time of a global health crisis the multi-billion-dollar company Sinclair Broadcasting Group is giving its freelance technicians the cold shoulder.
Rather than offering a relief package of substance to sports broadcast techs who have lost 100% of their income, Sinclair has decided to offer $2,500 interest free loans with payback terms that would see workers having to hand over up to half of their paycheck per event once work resumed.
Other networks, like FOX, CBS, Disney, ESPN, are offering payments for canceled and postponed events including healthcare benefits. By only offering their employees an insufficient loan and ignoring their need for essential benefit contributions in addition to income, Sinclair Broadcasting is jeopardizing the wellbeing of workers and their families.
Sports broadcast technicians need your help standing up to Sinclair. Join our collective voice and tell Sinclair Broadcasting that it’s not ok to take advantage of a global health crisis to gain wealth for your shareholders.
