Tell Hearst to Play fair in Pittsburgh!

Hearst TV bargains fairly in at least 6 US cities, including Baltimore, Cincinnati, Kansas City, Boston, New Orleans, and Omaha. 

Not in Pittsburgh.

For more than a year, reporters and anchors seeking a contract through collective bargaining at WTAE-TV (Channel 4) have been stonewalled by owner Hearst-TV.   Hearst still refuses employee proposals for basic standards like a minimum salary scale and overtime pay.

Please help WTAE reporters and anchors by telling GM Michael Hayes: Pittsburgh is not a second class city!

Sign the petition below:


Dear Michael Hayes:

I have watched WTAE for many years and I hope to continue, but you and Hearst TV must respect our community and play fair in Pittsburgh. That's why we are insisting that you bargain fairly with your Pittsburgh WTAE on air staff.
