The staffers at Chicago Public Media voted 40-7 today to have SAG-AFTRA as their union. The deal covers professionals who produce, report, host and present content for Chicago’s National Public Radio outlet WBEZ, Vocalo, Sound Opinions and related digital services. “Public radio is more than a job,” said Rob Wildeboer, WBEZ’s criminal and legal affairs reporter. “We believe organizing as staff members is an important step to achieving the goals we all share here: producing excellent journalism that serves the public and making this important local institution even stronger than it is today.”
