Local Union No. 3, IBEW representing 1800 employees of Charter Communications/Spectrum is on strike.
The Local 3 members formerly employed by Time Warner Cable before the purchase by Charter have been working under an expired agreement.
Both TWC and Charter have refused to bargain with Local 3 for over 2 years and we need to take action now.
We take great union pride in the work we do, but Spectrum is refusing to provide us the tools, resources and support we need to do our jobs.
Customers deserve the services they were promised.
In addition, the company has proposed drastic health care cuts for unionized workers and their families and wants to eliminate our retirement benefits and job security. We decided we simply can no longer stay silent.
We can win. With your help we can show a multi-billion dollar company like Charter/Spectrum that labor and the community stand together!
Recently New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman made the decision to sue Spectrum/Charter communications for misleading customers by failing to deliver the faster Internet speed and performance they were promised.
