They are right But we can make it tough on them if you’re still here unionize and fight lawyer vs lawyer hopefully a settlement will happen at the end what do you have to lose unions dues for a lawyer.

Too little to late I wish everyone luck but the post below nailed it. Contractors and cheap labor if u didn't take notice yet.

it seems a bunch of you guys are clueless in life in general. You think you are owed something. You do not get that you have to figure out the best path for you. Your parents raised you based on standards that no longer exist. Todays game is control what you can control. If a bunch of VRP's are coming down the pipe that means opportunities will be opening up. Look to get another position to freshen up your skills and then leave. Start searching for other jobs that you want interview, see what types of skills they are looking for and then start adapting, There is life beyond the cable industry especially with the levels of competition expected in the near future. Believe in yourself and stop thinking you can bully a billion dollar international company teetering on the edge of bankruptcy. Heads they win, tails you lose. It was figured out years ago back when they stopped contributing to the pension. You guys are 50 steps behind trying to figure out your next play. Start a new game.

It is definitely true. They offered it to certain groups in Altice USA as long as they hit 65 with age and years of service combined .... Lightpath was not included in the VRP. I was one of them who got the email with the VRP offer. What we need is a UNION........ we need to rally to unionize... especially those who didnt get a VRP. That just means you will probably be let go soon

Confirmed. Does not appear to be salary only either.

I heard it went out to salary employees only. Can anyone confirm or deny? Also heard Light path didn't get the offer because we are for sale.

It's real alright, seen the e-mail here in Texas, The company just doesn't have enough money to pay back shareholders or even make a positive net income return. RVP's have to happen.

As for me, I am still looking for another ship to jump to, best of luck everyone.
