Cable Company Accused by Federal Agency of Union-Busting | NJ Lawyers

By Thomas McKinney

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) plans to file a complaint charging Cablevision with making illegal threats and offering improper incentives to its workers in the Bronx to discourage them from forming a union.  As part of the complaint, the NLRB accused Cablevision’s chief executive of illegally telling workers that they would be excluded from training and job opportunities if they voted to unionize. The NLRB also said that Cablevision improperly offered raises and better benefits to its workers in the Bronx to persuade them from forming a union.

According to the NLRB, Cablevision’s tactics improperly influenced a union election last June in which Cablevision’s Bronx installers voted 121 to 43 against joining the Communications Workers of America union.
