Comcast Workers Update: Please Post your comments, complaints and wish lists here. You will always be anonymous, unless you wish to share your identity. Feel free to tell all, anti-union posts will be permitted, but no profanity or personal slander will be tolerated.
Congratulations to the Techs that attended the informational meeting last week. You have taken the first step to a better working environment!
The meeting was about gathering information from Comcast employees concerning specific complaints with the working conditions. We were also looking for ways to communicate with employees without interference from supervisors and management.
In return we discussed how a collective bargaining agreement, giving each employee a voice and a vote in the collective bargaining process, will allow workers to improve their conditions. We discussed how a union is formed and how it works, what the employees must do to form a union, and what to expect from their employer who is retaliating against their will to organize a union.
What we learned from the workers present and those that e-mailed their comments is:
- Working conditions continue to deteriorate.
- We have been told that supervisors (whose bonuses are dependent on the techs performance) admit in private that YOU need a union!
- The metric has evolved from a broken system of unobtainable goals for bonus and wage rewards, into a tool to punish, discriminate and terminate employees.
- Management cannot manage the workload and employees suffer with added calls, great distances between jobs and changing shifts.
Employees do have certain rights protected by Federal Law. There are other rights that can only be obtained with a written contract. The way to get a written contract is to have a majority of employees demanding it!
The National Labor Relations Board will conduct (and monitor) an election if the IBEW can provide the proper show of support from employees. If you agree your working conditions can be improved by uniting together and collectively bargaining with Comcast and want the help of an internationally proven collective bargaining representative, then you should authorize the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers to represent you! This is a simple procedure. Contact the IBEW and tell them “I want to sign an Authorization Card!
THERE WILL BE MORE MEETINGS! You can also contact the IBEW by;

We all know that worldwide, there is a “War on the working Classes”. From Wisconsin to Tallahassee, the “haves” are plotting daily to take even more from the “have not’s”. How much more are you willing to give up maintaining your bosses’ lavish lifestyle? As we do without, bosses’ compensation is at obscene levels.
The opportunity to sustain this Union Campaign is in your hands! Sign A Card!
