Guild urges people to refuse replacement work at the CBC

Today, celebrations are taking place across the country to mark the 25th anniversary of the Terry Fox marathon. The Canadian Media Guild fully supports these events and encourages Guild members to participate in them.

However, the CBC intends to broadcast a program about the anniversary and it has come to the attention of the Guild that the production has been misrepresented to people who have been asked to work on it. If you have been engaged to work on this program, you are being asked to do work subject to the lockout. If you proceed, you will be scabbing.

This is a CBC broadcast, scaled back because of the lockout. It would have been a much bigger effort, involving hundreds of Guild members, had the Corporation not imposed the lockout on August 15.

Out of respect for the ceremonies, the Guild is not erecting picket lines at any events across the country. However, the Guild urges people to refuse to do the work of broadcasting the events on CBC.

Have you been approached to do this or any work that might air on the CBC? If so, please let us know (guild@interlog.com) at 416-591-5333 or 1-800-465-4149.
