Carson Daly's Planned Return To TV Airing Could Inspire Union Busting

Carson Daly is planning to return to taping shows next week despite the writers strike. While his show uses mostly nonunion staff such as writers, it could still inspire other programs to soon return to the air with fresh taping with nonunion strikebreaker replacement writers, and result in a wave of union busting. All of this should be a huge concern to the writers. With some networks such as NBC heavily involved in a cost-cutting campaign this year anyway, the lure to use cheaper, lower cost, nonunion writers could become strong for some networks.
