A three-year agreement with the WGA West that covers web writers-producers working in TV and radio news and promotions in the Los Angeles area was ratified today by CBS. It’s the guild’s first contract with online news writers. The deal includes increases in minimums and wages, and secures grievance procedures, paid vacations, holiday pay, and health and pension benefits. The CBS staff voted to be repped by the WGAW in July 2009 and have been negotiating since then.
