Union resolutions

Resolution to show solidarity with IBEW Local 3 workers

Whereas, 1800 members of Local 3 of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers have been on strike against Charter Communications/Spectrum since March 28, 2017; and

Whereas, these qualified employees have been working under an expired contract for the past two years; and

Whereas, many UFT members live in areas where Charter/Spectrum is their cable provider; and

Whereas Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has sued Charter/Spectrum over the false claims that Spectrum workers helped expose; and

Whereas, non-union workers are now performing installations, repairs and other on-site services in union households, be it therefore

Resolved, that the UFT supports IBEW Local 3 members in their quest for a fair contract with Charter/Spectrum, and be it further

Resolved, that the UFT will make a donation to IBEW Local 3’s strike fund; and be it further

Resolved, that the UFT will inform its members about the strike so members know non-union contractors are entering residences to do the important work that should be performed by striking union technicians.
