Fel­low unions join elec­tri­cal work­ers in rally vs. ca­ble gi­ant

New York Daily News - - NEWS - BY GIN­GER ADAMS OTIS

In its nearly six-month bat­tle with strik­ing work­ers, Char­ter Com­mu­ni­ca­tions has been fight­ing one union. On Mon­day, it will be con­fronted by dozens more. Fed up by the grind­ing con­tract dis­pute that’s brought some of the strik­ers to the brink of fi­nan­cial ruin, the In­ter­na­tional Brother­hood of Elec­tri­cal Work­ers Lo­cal 3 put out a call to arms — na­tion­ally as well as lo­cally.

AFL-CIO Pres­i­dent Richard Trumka is among the many la­bor lead­ers to re­spond.

Trumka is com­ing to the city to head­line a ma­jor rally and march start­ing at 3 p.m. on Mon­day in Brook­lyn’s Cad­man Plaza.

March in city by In­ter­na­tional Brother­hood of Elec­tri­cal Work­ers Lo­cal 3 on Mon­day will fea­ture dozens of other unions. Lo­cal 3 has been on strike against Char­ter Com­mu­ni­ca­tions since March. CON­TIN­UES ON PAGE 16
