The National Association of Broadcast Employees and Technicians decided not to strike NBC’s “Christmas in Rockefeller Center” broadcast, after an earlier threat to do so, B&C reports.
The union said it would strike if there wasn’t progress on talks for a new contract. Despite the fact that there wasn’t, the union said "We’re not going to let the Grinch at NBC ruin Christmas for millions of people around the world. So we’re going to stay on the job. We hope that NBC sees Christmas as a time of goodwill, too, and that they negotiate a new and fair contract with us."
NBC said earlier that it was the union that had been holding up talks.
