We, as a shop of amalgamated UE Local 404, condemn the recent spate of outrageous violations of the rights of workers at WBAI, which amounts to a flagrant case of Union busting:
We call for the immediate reinstatement of all fired and banned staff.
We call upon UE National to provide all necessary aid, including, where needed, legal assistance, and the mobilization of brother & sister unions nationally, to seek emergency redress of these outrageous abuses.
We hereby establish an action committee to design powerful strategies to fully confront these abuses.
We demand that we be allowed to work in an environment free of physical and verbal violence by Management. It is our right to work in an atmosphere that is not hostile, that is free of harassment, intimidation and threats by Management. If Management has issues with staff, the Union has the proper mechanisms to handle any complaints.
We demand an end to Management's arbitrary and unjustified threats of censorship and silencing. We demand that the workplace be free of Management's character assassination, racial slurs, name-calling, false or unproven accusations, innuendoes, slander and physical aggression.
We demand an end to the emotional and economic aggression as evidenced by arbitrary firings and bannings, which additionally serve as a damper to the free speech of the remaining staff. We demand the end of both the tacit and overt support of abusive behavior as has been conducted by Management.
