After a year of cuts at KPFA, Pacifica is proposing to slash one-quarter of KPFA’s remaining workforce. Here’s what KPFA’s workers want:
PUT RADIO FIRST. Pacifica’s budgets should cut bureaucratic overhead, not programs KPFA’s listeners count on.
LOCAL CONTROL. Stop sidelining KPFA’s elected Local Station Board and local management in the budget drafting process.
NO POLITICAL PURGES. Three Pacifica board members drew up a name-by-name list of workers to fire that targeted those who didn’t endorse their election slate – they have no business interfering in KPFA’s union contract.
PRESERVE LOCAL PROGRAMMING. Stop all attempts to replace community-driven programs with syndicated content.
