War coverage comes before labor troubles. NABET-CWA and ABC Inc. agreed to suspend negotiations temporarily and to extend their current labor pact because of the war "and the important role that ABC and its NABET-represented employees are playing in coverage of the conflict." About 2,500 workers are involved.
The existing contract was to expire at the end of this month.
"The parties have decided jointly to extend the contract with a provision for full wage increase retroactivity until midnight, May 12, 2003," they said in a joint statement. They agreed to start negotiating again in late April.
