Labor Versus Time Warner Upstate

Here’s an interesting fight you probably haven’t heard of, at least not yet.

In Utica, the Communication Workers of America has launched an agressive campaign against Time Warner, complete with print, radio and television ads.

The aim of the campaign is to enable 35 Time Warner employees unionize. Yes, that’s a tiny number. But according to a person working with the union, most of the industry is unionized, and this could be the start of a much larger fight.

I guess we’ll see.
