Last week we reported on the 23 Brooklyn technicians who were fired by Cablevision for allegedly refusing to work Wednesday morning.
Cablevision CEO James Dolan.
The fired technicians were a part of a group of about 70 workers who say that they were attempting to utilize an open-door policy at the company that allows workers to voice work-related concerns to management. They requested to meet with their vice president Wednesday morning to voice their frustrations over their nearly year-long quest to negotiate a collective bargaining agreement with Cablevision--a contract which workers say is being negotiated in bad faith by the company.
The workers were told that the site's vice president wasn't available to talk when they initially requested. Many of the workers decided to stay and wait for him to become available. Cablevision says the workers were asked to head out on their routes but refused to comply.More »
