"Let's be clear, we are not talking about a single download. We are not talking about an accidental visit to a site. We are talking about multiple log-in's, multiple downloads and multiple violations of the integrity ethics code that he stood before all of us and accepted as a city commissioner" said Dawn Smolowitz who's with the Communications Workers of America
"The CWA union is knowingly disseminating false and defamatory statements in an attempt to negatively impact Cablevision's business and damage the reputation of the company and its employees,” the company said in its official statement. “The CWA's desperate campaign is designed to spread lies and misinformation to Cablevision's customers, elected officials and the public at large.  It is clear that the CWA will stop at nothing to advance its selfish interests and we are asking the court to put an immediate halt to their unlawful and malicious activities."
...lawsuits from Cablevision, which, like all the earlier ones, will be dismissed," Shelton, vice president of CWA District 1, said in a statement. "Rather than stop the outrageous behavior at Cablevision and pay Brooklyn workers the same wages as other Cablevision employees, [CEO] James Dolan is again turning to expensive lawyers to try to intimidate workers and their allies. It's time for him to sit down and negotiate in good faith with Cablevision workers."
"…these rules would do great damage to the Internet and could have devastating consequences for California's"
