Had a nice conversation with a Nickelodeon executive today. Kind of a "Hi, howdy" thing, an introductory sit-down... After pleasantries, the vice-president asked if there were any issues I wanted to share. I said the only ones that came to mind were the hours of uncompensated overtime that most tv animation houses -- including Nick -- often have their employees do. I said I didn't know how many grievances would result from uncompensated o.t., since most employees don't like to stick their heads up above the parapet too high. But I made clear it was an ongoing issue. The veep thanked me for being frank and open.
