Despite the increasing amount of pressure from around the globe, ABC recently came down hard on the BlackBerry overtime issue. Employees were asked to sign a waiver saying they might be required to check their BlackBerrys after hours, but would not be getting paid for it. The Writers Guild of America East told its members not sign, prompting ABC to force their employees to give the phones back. ABC finally backed down and said they would pay workers for BlackBerry use that goes "beyond routine," but I imagine there are some bruised egos and ugly glances being shot around the office these days.
