Brooklyn Cablevision Workers’ Labor Day Rap
Brooklyn Cablevision workers kicked off the Labor Day weekend with a powerful music video about their struggles to join CWA.
The song, “We Are The Union,” features two Cablevision technicians, Jerome “Jaywalk” Thompson, Jr. and McDaniel “Grimm” Paul, and a former customer-service agent, Shatoya Thomas-Flemmings.
In January, 282 Brooklyn Cablevision workers joined CWA Local 1109, becoming the company’s first employees to unionize. Since then, workers at Brooklyn Cablevision contractors Vision Pro and Falcon Communications have voted to join CWA.
