Stand with your fellow WGAW members at CBS.
We must all do our part to curb the spread of COVID-19. Yet, as our nation unites around this shared goal, WGAW news writers at CBS are being left behind.
While other essential businesses have taken steps to support their employees’ physical and financial well-being, CBS refuses to publicly guarantee paid sick leave for any of its news writers beyond the current contractual allotment(s). For weeks, news writers have asked CBS for assurances that they will have adequate paid sick leave for the duration of the time they, or their loved ones, are dealing with this deadly virus. CBS has remained silent.
It’s time for CBS to take responsibility for the health and safety of all its employees.
