The Communications Workers of America has been beefing with the cableco for more than a year, since it claimed Cablevision illegally sacked 22 staffers who elected to join the union. The two sides have been embroiled in a fight that has landed at the National Labor Relations Board, and the union fired a salvo Thursday by disrupting Cablevision’s annual shareholders confab. The Wall Street Journal reports that after repeated attempts to quiet the protesters, CEO James Dolan summoned the cops to eject them from the meeting at the cabler’s Long Island HQ. The union countered that shareholders had “asked the company tough questions about the potential impact” of the labor flap. Cablevision said later, “This is a shareholder meeting with a clear set of rules. The CWA attempted to disrupt the meeting; they were asked to refrain, and when they did not, they were asked to leave. The matter is now in the hands of the authorities.”
