CNN Forced To Pay ANOTHER Large Sum Following Covington Settlement

This past week has been a rough one for CNN financially.

They’re already losing tons of money by their continual dip in ratings and viewers, but add on top of that having to settle with Nick Sandmann, the kid from Covington Catholic that they slandered, for an undisclosed amount.

Not only that, but they just agreed on another settlement agreement in which the network will have to pay $76 million in back pay to union employees.

I’m not sure how much longer the board is willing to put up with the leadership that they have at CNN because it’s obviously destroying the network. It doesn’t bother me one bit because they are finally starting to get what they deserve after years and years of crooked practices.

They constantly lie, they treat their employees like garbage, they create fake stories…it’s just terrible.

The settlement demonstrates the Board’s continued commitment to enforcing the law and ensuring employees who were treated unfairly obtain the monetary relief ordered by the Board,” general counsel Peter B. Robb said. A representative for CNN did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.

The dispute first started in 2003 after CNN terminated its contract with Team Video Services, which provided CNN video services in Washington D.C. and New York. CNN then hired new employees for the same job without bargaining with the two unions that represented TVS employees. The NLRB said that CNN was trying to operate as a nonunion workplace, telling workers that their prior employment with TVS and union affiliation disqualified them from employment.

CNN played the settlement up like they were happy to end it and pay everyone, which is yet another lie

“After more than a decade of litigation, negotiation and appeals we are pleased to have resolved a longstanding legal matter,” said a CNN spokesperson.
