A major broadcast union and ABC said Friday they've signed a new contract that becomes effective today and lasts until March 31, 1993. The agreement was signed after two of three hold-out units of the National Assn. of Broadcast Employees and Technicians ratified a contract approved earlier by a majority of 2,150 full-time and 350 part-time ABC employees.

Negotiators for NBC and the National Assn. of Broadcast Employees and Technicians have agreed to meet with a federal mediator in New York for the first time since contract talks stalled two months ago, it was reported Wednesday. About 2,800 NABET employees have been working without a contract since their last three-year pact with the network expired on April 1. NBC made its final contract offer to NABET on April 2 after a month of negotiations in San Diego, but the union refused to ratify it.

KNBC-TV Channel 4 told 16 union members that they would be suspended without pay for participating in an April 24 "sickout" at the station. Citing them for "irresponsible and/or dishonest behavior," KNBC news director Tom Capra docked one day's pay from the 16 National Assn. of Broadcast Employees and Technicians (NABET) members and ordered them suspended for three days, beginning Monday.

The strike may be over, but a top executive of the National Assn. of Broadcast Employees and Technicians says a bid to oust her from office may get support from members of her own local who were involved in the just-ended strike against NBC. Carrie Biggs-Adams, whose 2800-member union had been on strike from June 29 until Saturday, is the elected president of NABET's second-largest chapter, the 700-member Local 53 in Burbank.
