CMG announces tentative new CBC agreement, freelancer issues still pending

The Canadian Media Guild has reached a tentative agreement with CBC, but there are still freelance-related issues to work out.

Freelancer pay rates are one of several areas still under discussion. The next negotiating session, which will be devoted to resolving freelance issues, is scheduled for early December. We’ll post details on Story Board once they’re available.

There will be a ratification vote on the new agreement early in the new year. If ratified, the new agreement will come into effect on April 1, 2014 and will stand until 2019.

CMG staff rep Keith Maskell is available to answer any questions at
