Supreme Court Rejects Cablevision's nonsense. The U.S. Supreme Court refused to grant Cablevision Systems Corp.'s request for a stay of the National Labor Relations Board hearing set to begin July 8 in Manhattan. Cablevision's actions are clear evidence of why workers need a fully functional NLRB. It's the only agency that can enforce federal labor law for 80 million workers. 200 plus Cablevision workers in Brooklyn organized with CWA 1109, and are currently battling for a first contract. "The Senate minority and their U.S. Chamber of Commerce supporters don't want a functional NLRB. That's why it's up to the Senate majority, to change the rules if necessary, so that these and other nominations can have an up or down vote," said CWA President Larry Cohen.
