Comcast only cares about saving money.
Saving money, overcharging for their cable service and trapping you into bundles that you can never get out of because doing business with Comcast is like doing business with the mafia.
I feel the same way about Comcost, I mean Comcast. I have had Direct Tv which was fine but I now have AT&T Uverse for cable. I like AT&T Uverse the best.

The only thing is that the logical union to provide technical people is the IATSE, but their wage rates would probably be as high as, if not higher than, NABET's, so that would probably not result in much cost savings.
IATSE represents different departments though, such as the Carpenters, Electricians, Props and Special Effects. IATSE deals mostly with the construction of the sets at "Days." NABET's role is all the technical work involving the audio, video and lighting.

NABET and IATSE have represented different departments historically, because it appears that Days may be staffed by some "NBC" workers and some "Sony" workers. As the owner of the production facility, NBC employed the technical workers handling audio, video and lighting for Days under the NABET agreement, while Sony, as the production company, probably employed the workers in the other departments. Perhaps that was because technical people like audio and video editors worked on other productions at that facility. Or the division could be a historical remnant stemming from when soaps were produced live.

If NBC no longer owns the facility and is not employing those workers under the NABET agreement, the question now is who employs them. Is it the new owner of the facility who may or may not be a signatory to any union agreements? Or is it Sony, which I don't think is a signatory to the NABET agreement, but could work out a deal with NABET or could turn to the unions with which already has agreements. That is why I mentioned IATSE. The technical work could be performed by IATSE locals that do the same types of work as the laid-off NABET workers. For instance, members of Studio Electrical Lighting Technicians Local 728 of IATSE in Los Angeles could be brought in to handle lighting. That would make some sense since Sony is already signatory to the AMPTP's agreement with Local 728.
I'm not an expert on the unions, but if you check out this page of the IATSE Local 33, which is what "Days" (and I'm guessing other places) use:

http://www.ia33.org/index.cfm?zone=/unionactive/user_signup.cfm&authorize=noentry&CFID=110247664&CFTOKEN=55600d48f20220c5-8CC59155-2590-0942-6E84F2CF32DA5455

and you go down to where a member can list what Crafts/Departments they are involved in...it only mentions stuff like Carpenters/Electricians/Props/Forklift Drivers/Sewing Machine Operators/etc....

So, based on that, it doesn't look like IATSE employs those other departments (audio/video/lighting) at Days or anywhere else.



My dad was a master control engineer at our Nashville ABC affiliate before he died and was part of NABET. Most people in NABET are people that are master control engineers, video tape people, camera people, engineers, lighting, sound, etc.
I don't recall carpenters or forklift operators being with NABET.

I don't know if anyone else listened to this interview, so if this has already been mentioned, please ignore, but I thought it was great when Eric said his nickname on set is "Eric Shirtsof" and that he is called to set that way, lol.

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/medianiteradio/2012/12/05/live-interview-with-eric-martsolf-dool-scandal-crest

My only complaint is this interviewer got his character wrong on Passions. They called him "Eric Winthrop" instead of "Ethan"! How could anyone who even watched 1 second of that show forget his name was Ethan?? For goodness sake....

But on Days, the employees who perform those duties are represented by NABET, which mainly represents workers involved in local television and live productions (such as local news broadcasts).
NABET does not mainly just do work in local television and live productions. They are also involved with many prime time shows as well. NABET was with the Golden Girls their whole run. Golden Girls is just one example of a prime time show. There are a lot of others.

Very interesting. She and EM think they might be headed for a real Bristen pairing in the future (even after all this shit hits the fan with the affair reveal). I would be on board for this IF they keep Brady and Kristen as "edgy" and "shady" together.

A safe bet, since I think Casey's referring to the drink, not the place. (Hermosa, that is.)

I could be wrong, though.

I heart Clark Kent/Superman. He maybe wearing glasses but he doesn't look like my man Clark.
