Cablevision is facing several unfair labor practices charges this week at a National Labor Relations Board hearing in New York City.
The charges include:
- The company has engaged in "bad-faith bargaining" with zero intent on ever reaching an agreement with Brooklyn technicians. Despite voting to join CWA more than a year ago, these workers still do not have a first contract.
- CEO James Dolan personally threatened to deny Bronx workers job opportunities and training if they voted for the union.
- To discourage additional CWA organizing campaigns, Cablevision illegally gave raises of $2 to $9 an hour to every Cablevision employee – except those in Brooklyn.
