Re: An opposing and a middle of the road view of the firings
Both of those present a similar view of the situation and is consistent with what I originally heard with the exception that the Cablevision spokesperson claimed the employees were engaging in a 'strike'.
I would be very interested to hear how long these workers were waiting before being considered 'refusing to work'. I would also be curious as to why some of the workers who left (as supposedly requested by management) were called back in and terminated.
If a vice president was at their work location, the workers requesting a short meeting would not be unreasonable to me. Being fired for this, as opposed to being suspended, does seem unreasonable though.
