Tentative deal must be ratified before CBC programming returns to normal
TORONTO (CP) – Although CBC and its workers have finally reached common ground in their contract dispute, it will be a while before things return to normal and all the familiar voices and faces – including chief anchor Peter Mansbridge – are back on the air.
“What has to happen is that the union members would have to vote on the agreement,” said CBC spokesman Jason MacDonald. “Assuming that they do vote in favour of it, we would then be in a position to bring people back to work as quickly as possible.”
About 5,500 employees were locked out Aug. 15, and the public broadcaster filled radio and television airtime with re-runs and managers reading the news. Portions of the fall schedule were delayed, including the broadcast of a Trudeau miniseries.
A memorandum of agreement was reached early Monday and negotiators continued to hammer out a back-to-work protocol.
If a vote is affirmative, MacDonald said workers would be phased in over a few days.
“We would like to have people back to work and our regular schedule up by the end of next week,” he said Monday.
Many of the new shows CBC was touting were scheduled to debut in mid-season anyway, including Mary Walsh’s six-episode comedy Hatching, Matching and Dispatching, and a series from Ken Finkleman about the inhabitants of a strange hotel.
Canadian Media Guild negotiator Arnold Amber indicated it takes time to get schedulers and assignment desks up and running.
“There are literally a whole number of people that will have to go back as soon as possible to prepare the groundwork for the rest of the people to return,” he said.
