“It has come to my attention today that the CEO of Altice USA, the company that acquired Cablevision Systems Corporation last year, held an anti-union meeting in the Bronx today and specifically called out by race potential workers in an insulting manner, stating: ‘We're not bringing in some Mexican guy, some French guy...’
“What does that mean? I was appalled by the references and demand that Dexter Goei apology to those who were in that meeting, as well as, the company’s residential and corporate customers for his outlandish statement. I sincerely hope that this is not the work-culture temperament Mr. Goei plans to impose in the new company. We are a community that is union-friendly, family-friendly and employee-friendly. This is the direction Mr. Goei needs to go in when dealing with the company’s employees, its contractors, its customers and other business matters here in the Bronx,” said Council Member Andy King, who sits on the Council’s Civil Rights Committee.
