Allison Croghan @AllisonCroghan๐Ÿ”Iโ€™m a Utah broadcaster and I support . Noncompetes shouldn't keep hardworking journalists from earning a living for 1 twitter.com 2 months AFTER finishing a contract. If you treat them good, they won't want to walk across the street!

Rebecca Aguilar @RebeccaAguilar๐Ÿ”To lawmakers:
TV Journalists are people not property.
Unshackle them from these noncompetes.
It is a win-win for TV twitter.com managers and owners. Cheap labor.
Why won't they give U a list of salaries?
Some make less than 28K. While GM's make 6 figures.

Rebecca Aguilar @RebeccaAguilar๐Ÿ”Every TV journalist should be watching issue in
TV big wigs want to keep noncompetes to keep cheap labor from jumpi twitter.com ng to competition for better pay. GM's make 6 figures while producers barely make $26K @UtahRep don't be bought. U represent ALL PEOPLE.

Lincoln Graves @LincolnGraves๐Ÿ”THIS...a million times over.
Thanks Speaker Hughes for pushing for , which would ban non-competes among broadcasters twitter.com in my home state of Utah. It won't affect me, but it would affect many friends I have there. I'm glad Oregon's laws aren't as archaic.
Nineveh Dinha Madsen @NinevehDinha๐Ÿ”Since News Executives are having lunch with lawmakers right now, we'd like to request to present OUR side in House twitter.com and Senate Caucus.

Speaker Greg Hughes @GHughes51๐Ÿ”It makes no sense for employers to be permitted to compel employees with no access to proprietary information (media) twitter.com , to sign non-competes as a condition of employment & to restrain their ability to work.

Speaker Greg Hughes @GHughes51๐Ÿ”Employers can, in a sense, limit their workersโ€™ ability to quit, while protecting their own ability to fire for basic twitter.com ally any reason.
Speaker Greg Hughes @GHughes51๐Ÿ”At-will-employment must be a two-way street. If an employer has the right to fire for any reason, an employee should twitter.com also have the right to leave for any reason.
Speaker Greg Hughes @GHughes51๐Ÿ”โ€œIโ€™ve been in this industry for 20 yrs..while I worked there for a year & 1/2 they added maybe, what, 2% to that? & n twitter.com ow they want to prev me from working in my field & using any of what I knowโ€
Steph Dinsmore @stephcleme๐Ÿ”I see 3 main reasons to pass .
1) Non-compete contracts distort journalists' value
2) Non-compete contracts force good journalists to leave Utah or leave the industry. (this has happened many times lately)
3) Non-compete contracts hurt low-paid journalists the most

Wendy Garcia @IntoRainbowz๐Ÿ”Thank you Debbie - BINGO.
.
.
Behind the scenes there are many many journalists (on and off air) who are greatly impacted by these non-competes. They are handcuffed and held hostage. Zero negotiation too. They are forced to take low pay.
Wendy Garcia @IntoRainbowz๐Ÿ”Kevin the weatherman who is against is also paid hundreds of thousands. He had enough money to SIT OUT the non compete. Most news people canโ€™t afford that. Youโ€™re out of touch.
Speaker Greg Hughes @GHughes51๐Ÿ”An employer may invest in the human capital of an employee, but not to the extent that they should have an exclusive twitter.com right to their skills and experience.
Salt Lake County GOP @slcogop๐Ÿ” honors commitments written into our Utah State Constitution: โ€œIt is the policy of the state of Utah that a free market system shall govern trade and commerce..โ€ Furthermore, โ€œ[e]ach contract..in restraint of trade or commerce is prohibited.โ€ Article XII, Section 20.
Speaker Greg Hughes @GHughes51๐Ÿ”Wharton Prof. Peter Cappelli on non-poaching pacts: โ€œCo's could achieve the same results by making it attractive enou twitter.com gh 4 employees not to leave.โ€ The same could be said of non-compete agreements.
Speaker Greg Hughes @GHughes51๐Ÿ”To retain employees, companies should offer competitive compensation and a positive work environmentโ€”not force them t twitter.com o stay.
Rebecca Aguilar @RebeccaAguilar๐Ÿ”
Finding out that some high paid news anchors in Utah would rather support a Non-compete agreement that would keep lo twitter.com w paid colleagues from taking better paid TV jobs in same city. Plz support
Allison Croghan @AllisonCroghan๐Ÿ”Mostly on-air talent, management, producers, and a few other positions. Not everyone at the station has them. However twitter.com , they typically aren't negotiable. 12 months even if you finish a contract. 12 months if you're fired (unless they waive that, which isn't guaranteed).

Jeremy Harris @JeremyHarrisTV๐Ÿ”Many states ban non-compete contracts altogether. Some states, like Oregon, require companies to pay 50% of the emplo twitter.com yeeโ€™s salary during the non-compete period.
Allison Croghan @AllisonCroghan๐Ÿ”This is the voice of Bishop Keith McMullin (President & CEO of Deseret News Corporation) saying they could treat medi twitter.com a employees like "chattel" & "widgets" if they don't have noncompetes. He's hosting another anti- luncheon for legislators today.
Carla Pruitt, MPC @crobscarla๐Ÿ”I stand behind and will continue to support those fighting to get this bill passed. I'm three years removed from th twitter.com e industry so I can voice my support. Many of my former colleagues can't. Ironic, given the profession.
Wise Latinas Linked @wiselatinaslink๐Ÿ”What about people who WILLINGLY leave at the end of their contracts? - they should absolutely be allowed to work across the street if they want to. They should NOT be forced to sit without a job.
Wise Latinas Linked @wiselatinaslink๐Ÿ” cannot afford to lose good journalists because others want to profit off them. twitter.com
Speaker Greg Hughes @GHughes51๐Ÿ”โ€œShould BYU be able to prevent coaches from going to the U or vice versa? That's ludicrous. Surprise, surprise, the o twitter.com nly profession UT law doesn't allow non-competes for is lawyers.โ€

Do the right thing for employees.
#HB241
Wise Latinas Linked @wiselatinaslink๐Ÿ”I also support . Television journalists give up so much to accommodate deadlines and requests from management. A non-compete only prevents these journalists from succeeding personally and professionally.
Wise Latinas Linked @wiselatinaslink๐Ÿ”Listening to news management speak against is a JOKE. You do not speak on behalf of your employees. They are SILENCED out of FEAR. You use non-competes to intimidate and wield power over your employees.
Speaker Greg Hughes @GHughes51๐Ÿ”โ€œWe have a supremely skilled & qualified workforce & protecting their interests also serves to buttress our stateโ€™s c twitter.com ompetitive business advantage. UTโ€™s best & brightest employees are a resource like no other.โ€
Speaker Greg Hughes @GHughes51๐Ÿ”We live in a free market economy..Co's are responsible for creating an environment where employees choose to stay, r twitter.com ather than artificially blocking movement throughuse of legal machinations.โ€
Nineveh Dinha Madsen @NinevehDinha๐Ÿ”Sources tell me UNIONS are now contacting current journalists about the abuses of non-competes. PM me if a union rep twitter.com has talked to you.

Peter Valencia @peteravalencia๐Ÿ”As someone pursuing interested in pursuing a career in journalism, hearing the stories and reality of Utahโ€™s journali twitter.com sts shows the sacrifice they take on in the industry make to survive. - time to PASS
Nineveh Dinha Madsen @NinevehDinha๐Ÿ”Yet another letter from a journalist thatโ€™s landed in every inbox.

A recording revealing bullying tactics by mana twitter.com gement when it comes to contracts and non-competes?


Nineveh Dinha Madsen @NinevehDinha๐Ÿ”. how do you explain this? Your article doesnโ€™t include stories from every day journalists. See snippet from lett twitter.com er below. More in lawmakers inboxes.
Nineveh Dinha Madsen @NinevehDinha๐Ÿ”. youโ€™re painting a rosy picture of media contract negotiations. Do you speak from experience?

Non-Competes are wi twitter.com n-lose. Would you invite journalists to write an op-ed for ? Weโ€™d love to be included in discussion.


Allison Croghan @AllisonCroghan๐Ÿ”This article suggests that if noncompetes go away, that contracts will go away too. I see absolutely no chance of tha twitter.com t happening. The contracts still hold a lot of value for both sides.
Speaker Greg Hughes @GHughes51๐Ÿ”Iโ€™m hearing differently from current and former employees of these orgs. Most fear retribution (and some told by thei twitter.com r employees that speaking in support is frowned upon). I will respect their request of confidentiality, but what about their 1st Amendment right?
Allison Croghan @AllisonCroghan๐Ÿ”It'd still be illegal to break a contract. This would only be after you've finished a contract OR been fired. twitter.com
Allison Croghan @AllisonCroghan๐Ÿ”It leaves employees with little-to-no negotiating power. You take what you get or you leave Utah/the industry. Free e twitter.com nterprise would be nice. IMHO it would create a better product & more competitive wages. If a station treats employees well/pays well, why would they leave?
Allison Croghan @AllisonCroghan๐Ÿ”Contact your local representatives!!! Let me know if you need help figuring out who that is! twitter.com
Allison Croghan @AllisonCroghan๐Ÿ”Worth noting that other industries w/ noncompetes often have compensation. Or just a short distance, like 15 miles. F twitter.com or media, no pay PLUS Utah has the largest geographic viewing area in the country (all of Utah, plus parts of each surrounding state). Complete uprooting
Allison Croghan @AllisonCroghan๐Ÿ”I could probably get a job at a bar, since that's the only other work experience I have (outside of television/radio twitter.com /sports reporting... those are all off-limits for the noncompete). Maybe an entry level PR job?
Allison Croghan @AllisonCroghan๐Ÿ”This particular bill is just for news media since the sponsor felt media noncompetes were the most "abusive" of all i twitter.com ndustries. Even if a journalist/producer/etc finishes a contract, they would still have to sit out for 12 months, or move out of state. (Cont...)
Nineveh Dinha Madsen @NinevehDinha๐Ÿ”Is this open to the public? Or just news execs and legislators again?

makes another attempt at lobbying lawmakers twitter.com to strike down a bill that would ban non-competes.This time with a private invitation to a luncheon. ๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’

Saying that HB241 will "hurt families" twitter.com is nonsense. ( I'm looking at you and the garbage you post) I stand with .

2) Non-compete contracts force g twitter.com ood journalists to leave Utah or leave the industry. (this has happened many times lately)

Nineveh Dinha Madsen @NinevehDinha๐Ÿ”. โ€˜s GM admits he made him sign a non-compete and claims he โ€œchanged his life.โ€

Allison Croghan @AllisonCroghan๐Ÿ”This is the voice of 's VP/General Manager (Richard D. Jones) explaining why he thinks noncompetes are fair. TLDR: He twitter.com makes fun of how speaks, then says he "changed life" by forcing him to sign a noncompete if he wanted a job.
Nineveh Dinha Madsen @NinevehDinha๐Ÿ”Same time, same place? Is buying again?
