Layoffs scheduled to hit local entertainment industry - DAYS OF OUR LIVES possibly impacted
NBCUniversal issued 50 layoff notices effective Dec. 31, according to the state.

The employees — who primarily fill technical and operations positions — are represented by the National Assn. of Broadcast Employees and Technicians - Communications Workers of America, Local 53.

Union president Steve Ross said NBCUniversal officials are saying the workers aren’t needed because the company no longer owns the studio lot in Burbank, which it sold in 2007.

Some of the air-conditioning and building-services workers have been hired by the lot’s new owner, Ross said. However, production staffers who work on DAYS OF OUR LIVES are still in limbo, he added.

Ross said he has filed grievances against NBCUniversal over the layoffs.
