Staffers at Southern California Public Radio in Pasadena, Calif., have voted to join Hollywood’s largest union, SAG-AFTRA, according to the station. The union was formed last year with the merger of the Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists.

The Jan. 11 vote, tallied Jan. 18 by the National Labor Relations Board, was 35-26. Employees voting included reporters, producers, show hosts and news anchors, according to the Los Angeles Times.

SCPR, operated by American Public Media, runs KPCC-FM in Los Angeles and Orange counties, KUOR-FM in the nearby Inland Empire just east of Los Angeles, and KVLA-FM in the Coachella Valley, which includes Palm Springs.
