March on Optimum/Cablevision: Reinstate the 23 Illegally-Fired Workers!

23 Brooklyn Cablevision/Optimum workers were illegally fired on January 30. Why? When they tried to speak with a Cablevision/Optimum vice president about the company’s lack of good faith bargaining, the vice president claimed they were striking — even though none of the workers had refused to work. In fact, some of the workers who had begun their routes were called back to the garage to be fired.
