National Labor Relations Board members ruled Monday that NBC Universal, the parent company of the namesake TV network and the cable news channel MSNBC, was illegally refusing to deal with its employees' union, the National Association of Broadcast Employees and Technicians.

Heh heh. The bleeding of the entertainment business out of kalifornia will continue apace. Good news.

My word.... The hypocrisy is stunning....
As much as they lip sync the union song everyday, they should all resign ....
