BOULDER, CO ­ Employees of the Boulder, Colorado-based Free
Speech TV network announced today that they have joined the
Industrial Workers of the World union, and are asking management to
voluntarily recognize the union. More than two-thirds of Free Speech
TV employees are now members of the IWW's Communications,
Telecommunications and Computer Workers Industrial Union 560.
³We are proud to be a part of a union with such a long commitment
to free speech, and to defending the rights of all workers,² said Alex
Fountain, Free Speech TV¹s Technical Director. The IWW waged a
series of free speech campaigns across the American West in the
early decades of the 20th century, establishing through direct action
many of the rights American workers now take for granted.

Free Speech TV staff currently awaits a response from management
on whether the nation¹s oldest progressive television station will
officially recognize the new union and enter into contract negotiations.

The mission of FSTV is to strengthen movements for social and
economic justice and therefore the workers expect the
organization¹s President will welcome their announcement. They
anticipate a timely response as to whether management will recognize
Free Speech TV¹s new union. A press release with full details will
be sent out shortly.
