The Communications Workers of America weighed in on the $45 million
compensation package Adelphia Communications Corp. plans to give Bill Schleyer
and Ron Cooper, complaining that the MSO isn't "even willing to pay the industry
standard of a 3.5 percent wage increase to hourly employees."

Adelphia "should be striving to preserve employee morale and to depart from
the corporate excesses of its past, rather than seeking to enrich new executives
with inordinate sums," CWA said in a U.S. Bankruptcy Court
