A settlement was signed where CNN has agreed to pay $76 million in back pay to union employees.

The agreement with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is the largest monetary deal in their history.

The labor dispute has been going on for over ten years.

It involved union technicians from Team Video Services (TVS) whose contract was terminated by CNN.

CNN went on to hire non-union employees.

From Breitbart:

Variety reported that the labor dispute began in 2003 when the media company fired a group of unionized subcontractors working as technicians and in other support roles for Team Video Services before hiring non-union employees to replace those workers.

The action sparked a litigation war between the National Association of Broadcast Employees and Technicians and Communications Workers of America that has lasted more than a decade.

More than 300 people will take part in the settlement.

The NLRB, a federal agency that allows employees to unionize in the workplace, said in a statement that $76 million is more than what the agency typically sees in a back pay enforcement case.

“The settlement demonstrates the Board’s continued commitment to enforcing the law and ensuring employees who were treated unfairly obtain the monetary relief ordered by the Board,” general counsel Peter B. Robb said.

This is the second recent lawsuit settlement by CNN.

The network ended an ongoing dispute with Covington Catholic Student Nick Sandmann.

From The Daily Wire:

Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann reportedly has received a settlement from CNN after suing the far-left network for smearing him last year.

“CNN agreed Tuesday to settle a lawsuit with Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann,” Fox 19 reported. “The amount of the settlement was not made public during a hearing at the federal courthouse in Covington.”

Sandmann also filed lawsuits against The Washington Post and NBC Universal, each for $250 million or over, and is reportedly planning to “sue Gannett, owners of The Enquirer.”

In an interview on Fox News last year, McMurtry told anchor Sandra Smith, “Well, what CNN’s tagline is facts first. And what we believe their reporting was in this circumstance was lies first; cover-up second, and facts not yet determined by that organization. So the difference between this lawsuit and the other lawsuit that we have filed is that CNN is a very significant media organization with a much broader reach than say the Washington Post. It has Twitter followers of 41 million people. It published four videos. Nine online articles that were tweeted out. So that’s millions and millions and millions of repetitions of the lies and falsehoods that CNN spread.”

In early February, Sandmann’s lawyers released a list of 54 individuals and news organizations that they sent letters to instructing them to preserve evidence for potential lawsuits.

  1. Sock it to them all!! Maybe one way or another the liberal media will just get back to reporting the facts and let people make their own opinions with their own minds like they used to!!

    • Randall: Gotta fire (the Fat Boy) Jeff Zucker first. His Corp. Masters love pissing away money & showing the WORLD what asses they are so don’t look for that to happen.

  2. I Pray Sandman gets Everything he deserves from these people who slandered him !! He DID NOT Deserve those slanders!!! May God in Heaven Keep him in his arms for protection, In Jesus Holy name Amen

  3. It is time for CNN and other news media to report the truth instead of the biased misleading tripe they have been reporting.

  4. 41 million losers in life subscribe to CNN’s online rag. The mentally ill on display in all their glorious STUPIDITY. Matching anyone who watches CNN!

  5. We should consider this as bad news. Not just for CNN, which I hope falls off the earth, but I believe you should be able to fire union workers. Imagine it was your company and the most expensive labor you’ve got is under performing. There’s better workers for cheaper out there.

    This is what’s wrong with unions, not CNN. I’m against unions. They had a purpose during and just after the industrial revolution, but like everything run by bureaucrats and fat cats, and they stifle businesses and local governments.

    This article is faulted by the same things we hate leftist media for. If the “guy” we don’t like suffers, it must be a good thing. That isn’t logical.

    Down with unions. And I hope CNN disappears, but the two issues here are different. Let’s do better, shall we?

    • But CNN is a liberal-Democrat media corporation, and we all know that Democrats are pro-union. They promote the Democrat way, and support unions; of course that is, until it hits them in the pocket–then they squeal like the pigs they are.

  6. Totally Unfair!…Erc Sandman should include lawsuits for each and every of these news outlets and individuals! They so often distort/make up propaganda and smears the innocent…they must pay!

  7. Lots of interesting names on Sandmann’s lawyers’ “Hit Parade” list. Many whom I would love to see getting goosed in the wallet by those same lawyers. We all know these people need their wallets lightened by a court ruling against them for defamation. Its the only consequence this breed of human debris will understand. They certainly wouldn’t rectify the matter on their own because its the right thing to do. They will only correct their actions via a financial penalty. At a dollar amount that will raise their eyebrows.

  8. I guess all of you know that CNN is probably the only news that foreign countries can get. So if CNN propaganda is being televised in their language and they don’t it is all lies, no wounder why they hate our country. This only makes it harder for our president to promote World Peace. Fake News is the culprit for all of this turmoil on our planet. NOTE: CNN is owned by AT&T.
