Coalition Meets with Comcast in Arkansas PDF Print E-mail
Saturday, 25 February 2012 02:43

Representatives from Local 100 United Labor Unions and Arkansas Community Organizations met with Lisa Birmingham, Regional Vice President from the Comcast office in Michigan, Mike Wilson, Vice President in Little Rock, and Evangeline Parker, Comcast Public Affairs Coordinator, today at the Little Rock Comcast office. 

They did the dog and pony thing, but admitted that they made mistakes and were on the learning curve. 

We questioned them about the computers -- what were the specs, were they refurbished, were they really worth the $150, how long did it take to get them to the people? They did not know the answer to these questions. 

We pushed them on the following issues:

1. Allowing people to receive the service if they owe a back bill and make a payment plan -- they did say that people could get the service if they received amnesty for very old back bills;

2. Alternatives and clarification on the requirement to have a letter from the school saying that children were on the free lunch program. We urged them to accept applications without proof of enrollment. They did say that they were eliminating this requirement for Provision II schools. We told them to do more.

3. Setting goals and ways to measure success and to work with us in doing so. They said that they would come up with a measure. 

4. Making the application process local in addition to the national number.

5. Advising us on the specifics of the type of computer sold for $150...net book versus laptop, refurbished versus new with warranty.

We requested to meet again in 45 days for answers to our demands.

Shreveport Members Demand Internet for the Poor PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 25 January 2012 16:28

January 24th, 2012  Union members in Shreveport who work for Caddo Head Start and nursing homes throughout the region held a protest at the Shreveport Comcast Office on Quilen Rd. to demand that Comcast follow through on their commitment to bring affordable Internet services to low income families. 

Despite making agreements with the Government that they would provide lower cost services in exchange for being allowed to merge and take over competing companies, Comcast has failed to properly advertise the lower cost option to low income families and gives low income families who ask about the $9.99 service the "run around."   Local 100 members have asked the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to investigate the company for deceptive advertising and failure to follow through with their own agreement.
