Cablevision: Don’t Scrooge Workers

12/21/2012

Cablevision owner Jim Dolan has been playing “hard-to-get” in negotiations with the Brooklyn Cablevision workers who, inspired by the Occupy Wall Street movement, dubbed themselves “The Cablevision 99%” and voted to join the union Communication Workers of America (CWA). At the same time, he’s been giving raises to non-union workers in all other boroughs, as well as upgrading the technologies they use, leaving Brooklyn behind.

On Wednesday, December 19th, during the Knicks game at Madison Square Garden – Jim Dolan also owns the Knicks – they got some help from the Illuminator crew as they tried to get their message across.
