Thread regarding Altice USA (Cablevision) layoffs

Union Areas pay off! Got better raises

Sorry but the truth hurts. I got more then you did. The Union took care of me. What did Altice do for you?? I know they lied didn’t they. Didn’t they just say they were investing in there people? 6 billion right. Ohh ok. They couldn’t find another 1 or 2% for you? Don’t feel bad the contractors running the Fiber are getting paid!

The fact that you think a 2-2.5% union raise is better raise than you used to get, shows how much you skated by before the union.

3% thank g-d you got all those raises you must have to buy a lot of extra pants over the course of the year. I heard you always get holes in the knees. 30 hrs of ot for the year covers my 2% and I never have to ruin a pair of pants. Your heart beats for them...

Better raises means the union pays for itself. You would make more in the long run getting better raises from being in a union. Seems to be a hard concept to grasp for some. I understand there’s guys who only care about themselves and rather roll the dice.

You’ve been hearing the sky is falling for 5 years? Dummy it fell twice July 2019 and May 2020 over 3500 employees went! It also fell a month ago on News 12 ! Don’t be stupid it can happen at any moment! Especially now with all the lawsuits and customers leaving! Do your homework it’s coming to a shop near you!

some people will never understand why it's better to have a binding contract as opposed to being an at-will employee

its interesting, been hearing the sky is falling for the last 5 years. I have to say its def a different company how ever still a really good gig. I am not trying to pay dues plus that 300 yearly for absolutely nothing. PS i am over the max, got a 3 percent because work hard and the 2% bonus was a nice surprise.

Peace!

Getting back to the original post I just know how anyone would not want to be union working for this company that repeatedly lies and screws over their employees. The company only cares about anyone that can gain from skewing numbers for their own personal gain , while the union too is like that but their personal gain is by getting you the employee more for yourself so it’s in their best interest. Also I’d like to say I applaud any of the people still there you’ve got their a he-l not many have and don’t believe all the you’ll be gone soon they’ve been saying that forever keep on doing your thing . It’s not all sunshine and rainbows out there and I’m sure most of you have families.

enjoy it while it lasts because at the rate this company is losing money you won’t be getting jack sh-t pretty soon. stock prices dropped almost 25% in the last month lol with the rising prices at the pump and inflation, altice is going to start looking to reduce spending and you better believe it will be at their employees expense good luck

Yes we did get better raises However we’re done here indefinitely. They can’t keep up with the loss of customers on a daily, It will be an excellent excuse to cut us! Mark my words!Contractrors and gas cost nothing and they simply don’t care!

I’m right there with you thank god, However it should never of came to this, We were the leading cable company on the industry, Family owned, every one helped each other, now we’re the laughing stock in the business. Unfortunately the optimum name is destroyed and will not recover, which is not good for us! I regret wasting my time here, because this company will never recover its bad reputation

Congratulations. Would you like a gold star? Nobody cares lol. Anyone with half a brain knows that you're better off trying to find a new job rather than d--king around with the union at this point. When this company finally caves in on itself, your reps and Altice are going to take their money and run, leaving everyone else sucking wind.
