New York Cable System Worker Cooperative

New York Cable System Worker Cooperative

It all will start with a letter as simple as this one and a bunch of small investments from many people who are tired of being mistreated by major corporations like our current cable company Spectrum. Tired of having to put up with less service at higher prices then have to not only accept it, but pay for it. We say no more. We have the opportunity now like no other time to take control of this massive company to set things right, secure our future, and set up a new stream of retirement income all while helping the city we live in and love. This is stage one. We need to know how many agree with what we are trying to do and will follow this cause. Help start the ball rolling by just signing to show your interest and get your friends, family, and anyone else you can to look at this and do the same.

Why is this important?

Corporations like Spectrum are currently backing us into a corner just for trying to work and earn a decent living. They keep taking more and more away from us. Asking for more and more time from our lives. They make us take on more and more work while continuing to pay us less and less. They look to leverage our future for their profit. 1800 men and women who have worked 40 years of their life toward the goal of an American dream are on strike battling for over a year and a half as Spectrum tries to destroy that dream using our pay to tear our families, our friendships, our homes, our entire lives apart. Once again the backbone of the company, the worker is asked to give away our medical and retirement plan we spent 40 years building for our families which they know is something we just can't do. Then we have to listen to them insist on that demand as they tell us they promise on their mother's grave we will never get it back. Why do they do it? Just because they can. Raising prices on loyal customers who've been with this company longer than they have been in this city. Offering and charging extra for services they knew they could not provide. A matter currently under investigation with the New York attorney generals office. They could care less about the customers. They don't care about the public service commission. A million dollar fine for them is like a hundred dollar fine for us. They laugh at it. They scoff in the face of our city officials as if they weren't even there. Mislead our city agencies, treat our Governor and Mayor as if they do not even exist. They are not even from New York. Since when do we let someone else come into our house and disrespect our city and we fold over and take it? We are better than this. We will show them just how much better, when we take over the business we have run for the last 40 years and run it without them. A task maybe to large for any one man to handle but together we can bring this company to an end here in New York and bring this city service to, the people. They will no longer be allowed to pit us against each other, worker against worker in a race to the bottom. We will replace the only real problem we as the everyday worker face, them. We finally now have the power and opportunity to do it. All we have to do is take advantage of the opportunity in front of us. We may never have a chance like this again.
