The voice of members of The Canadian Media Guild, Fredericton.

Friday, September 02, 2005

Welcome to our blog

Many of you will be coming to this site for the first time after seeing our ad in Friday's Daily Gleaner. This site was set up almost three weeks ago, when CBC management decided to lock out its workers who are members of the Canadian Media Guild. This lockout is affecting 45 employees in Fredericton, including on-air personalities such as Terry Seguin, Anita Sharma and Barbara Roberts, as well as the producers, reporters, technicians, camera operators and others who bring you your local programming.

This site has two purposes: It's a way for local Guild members to communicate with each other (hence the daily posting of pictures from the picket line), but more importantly, it's a way for us to bring you our perspective on the lockout. You'll find links to the right that will give you information on the issues, and that will tell you how you can lobby for a settlement. There are also links to other lockout blogs, and audio links to various podcasts. These are "digital broadcasts" that you can download and listen to on your computer. As of this date, we've done one, with another planned in the next week.

The site is updated several times a day, so please check in regularly, and feel free to post a comment if you like.
