Thread regarding Altice USA (Cablevision) layoffs

All work going to contractors.

Everyday this month multiple techs are coming in to no routes. Just so the contractors have work. Today only 5 techs had routes. They say they are just keeping the contractors feed for the summer push. Is this happening in other areas. Or just suffolk

Then please tell us what they are for. Because you union bros need to wake up! Real unions have pensions, real cost of living increases, and job security. So again, what is the CWA bringing to the table besides an open hand to pick our pockets with?

No union can stop a company changing hands or being moved around as long as the contract is honored. God you company bros need to wake up.

Come on, we saw what good unions do, just look at all our old friends at Charter. All those union jobs handed over to cablevision techs. Let’s just hope that the lazy pro union guys are the first to go!
