Voice Your Support

Cablevision workers and contractors are fighting for the American Dream: fair wages and benefits that successful companies like Cablevision should provide.  Watch the video below to hear their stories and learn about their fight, then sign their petition:

Fired for saying, "Slavery"? Tell Dolan: Cablevision must rehire Jerome & bargain fairly with Brooklyn workers!

What gets you fired from Cablevision, using the N-word, or saying the word ‘slavery’? If you’re a union supporter like Jerome, apparently saying the word slavery is the real crime.

Three years ago, Jerome and his co-workers started trying to build a union at Cablevision and voted to join the CWA. Instead of good-faith bargaining, Cablevision has met them with intimidation and harassment and the illegal firing of 22 workers. Now, Cablevision has fired Jerome for saying that just like slavery is a stain on America, Cablevision's unfair treatment of the Brooklyn workers and union-busting is a stain on their new brand.

Even though Cablevision executives like James Dolan make tens of millions in salary and bonuses, Cablevision has refused to offer one penny in wage increases or agreed to take basic safety steps to protect technicians on the job.

Join Working Families, CWA, the Black Institute and New York Communities for Change to pressure Cablevision to hire Jerome back and bargain fairly for a fair contract!

Sincerely,
