The Guild bargaining unit at ZoomerMedia was certified in January, 2005, back when the broadcaster was known as Vision TV. We represent some 50 employees in various departments, including Production, Programming, Finance & Administration and Marketing & Communications. We negotiated our first collective agreement in 2007.
Guild members currently work on the two television services acquired by ZoomerMedia in 2009: VisionTV and One: the Body, Mind & Spirit Channel. VisionTV was found in 1988 as Canada’s national multi-faith and multicultural broadcaster. “One” was launched in 2001 as a digital cable service with programming on health and wellness, holistic living and paranormal phenomena. Guild members also provide broadcasting operations services for Joytv in Vancouver and Winnipeg.
