3.24.20 Update from the IBEW Broadcast Department: Fox Sports
Sisters and Brothers,
We wanted to drop you a quick note with some good news for our Fox Sports Freelancers. Fox Sports notified members yesterday they will be paying freelancers who were booked and confirmed on shows from March 14th until April 12th. Fox Sports will pay out straight time for booked workdays and make the associated benefit contributions. No travel days or per diem will be paid. We appreciate the efforts of Mike Davies, Brad Zager, Eric Shanks, and the entire Fox leadership team for making this possible, and offering relief to impacted members.
We will update you when we have further information.
Robert J. Prunn
Director IBEW Broadcasting & Telecommunications
