VICTORY: Cablevision Reinstates Illegally Fired Workers

Cablevision

After six years on the job at Cablevision/Optimum, La’kesia Johnson and several other coworkers voted to form a union, but the company’s management wouldn’t negotiate a contract. Instead, they locked out the employees and fired them for speaking out about working conditions. So La’kesia, along with the Communications Workers of America union, started a MoveOn Petition asking that she and her coworkers be reinstated. After gathering over 85,000 signatures, Cablevision/Optimum reinstated all but one of the workers.
