There Will Be Picket Lines Outside The Biggest Loser Today


The 50-person crew for the show has been on strike since last week, after every single one of them voted to join the IATSE union so they could get health and pension benefits. They took a low-key approach, but today will be different, as the union has issued a formal statement confirming picket lines. "The crew has not lost their resolve in spite of the employer hiring replacement workers and being unwilling to discuss a contract," said a union leader. [HR]
