Re: Setting the "union" question aside. Cablevision is notoriously anti-union, and losing the election in Brooklyn deeply emabarresed the owners, the Dolans.
Thats why they gave raises to other cablevison employees and not to the ones in Brooklyn.
Its my belief they dont want to ever settle a contract, other then a crappy contract that gives Brooklyn cable employees LESS then the non union counterparts, just to teach everyone a lesson.
