The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and CBS Television have tentatively agreed to a new deal that, if approved, would be in place until January 2015, Deadline.com reported.
In a statement, CBS President and CEO Leslie Moonves said of the proposed deal, "This new early agreement demonstrates the strength of the working relationship between CBS and the IBEW and reaffirms CBS’s commitment to the IBEW’s highly skilled work force."
The IBEW had 2,800 members working on CBS productions, including CBS Sports and CBS News. Union members have to approve the agreement. A response is anticipated by the end of July.
