Locked-out Broadcasters Turn to Podcasting

Locked-out CBC employees creating Internet broadcasts to stay on the air
August 26, 2005 - 16:02

HALIFAX (CP) - Locked-out CBC [Canadian Broadcasting Corporation] Radio staff have started producing Internet-based audio broadcasts to fill the void left by the labour dispute at Canada's public broadcaster.
The CBC locked out its employees in English Canada on Aug. 15 after the two sides failed to reach a tentative agreement after 15 months of negotiations.... At issue is the broadcaster's desire to create a more flexible workforce by hiring more contract and part-time employees. But the Canadian Media Guild said such a move threatens job security for full-time staff and limits opportunities for future employees.
