After a five-month campaign, 282 Cablevision workers in Brooklyn voted on Thursday, Jan. 26 to join the union ranks. In a 180-to-86 vote, the workers decided to join CWA Local 1109.
Local 1109 Vice President Chris Calabrese told Labor Press, "Cablevision is probably feeling bad right now, but we want to work with them. We want Cablevision to be successful, but we also want our new union brothers and sisters to be part of that success."
