As most of you are aware, the National Labor Relations Board has postponed the election that was to be held on July 1, 2015 while the Board investigates the charges that were filed relating to ABBR adjustments and threatening statements made to employees regarding the election. It is our understanding that Comcast has implied that the Union is attempting to inhibit the DSR’s from voting in this election. That statement is blatantly false. The Union wholeheartedly supports the legal right of all employees to vote for or against representation, however, an employee cannot truly exercise their right to vote while under threat or intimidation by either side. It is the NLRB’s responsibility to uphold the rule of law and ensure that all representation elections are done fairly and legally.
The Union will continue its efforts to reach a full and final agreement with Comcast.
