NEW YORK—Members and supporters of Cablevision workers in Brooklyn, who will vote for the Communication Workers of America in a Jan. 26 union recognition election, rallied Jan. 16 in front of Madison Square Garden. James Dolan, CEO of Cablevision, is chairman of the Madison Square Garden Company. The 280 Cablevision workers need a union “to get equal rights, better wages and so we pay less for health care,” said Guy St. Jean. “Our co-pay just went up 25 percent.” Rey Meyers said the company is “very militant against the union because we do the same work as Verizon, but are paid 35 to 40 percent less. Plus we get no pension.”
