Support Charter/Spectrum Workers on Strike

If you were a Time-Warner subscriber, the sale of that company to Charter Cable/Spectrum was not a good thing for the workers and I bet ultimately the customers. I'm going to try to make this event.

Brothers & Sisters,
We are ONE day away from coming together as NYC Labor to to march across the Brooklyn Bridge and rally in Foley Square with IBEW Local 3. 1,800 cable workers at Charter/Spectrum have been on strike for six months, and we are with them in their fight for a fair contract.

AFL-CIO President Rich Trumka and IBEW President Lonnie Stephenson will join Local 3 Business Manager Chris Erikson, NYS AFL-CIO President Mario Cilento, NYC CLC AFL-CIO President Vinny Alvarez, and labor leaders and union members from across NYC to stand up for our striking sisters and brothers.  We are asking you to stand with Local 3, too.

We'll assemble in Cadman Plaza and march across the Brooklyn Bridge to Manhattan for a rally at 4PM in Foley Square.
Find out more about Monday's march and rally here.

  1. Soectrum waited 10 monfhs after takeover to raise customer rates. This is frequently in rural areas where they are pretty much the only game in town. Clearly, not one penny of that money is seeing the pocket of anyone other than CEO.
