Comcast has sued the city of Oakland to block an ordinance that requires all companies with city franchises to allow employees to vote on union representation.

In the lawsuit filed yesterday, the Philadelphia-based cable operator seeks to prevent the labor rights ordinance from being enforced, claiming it violates federal law.

Comcast spokesman Andrew Johnson says the ordinance prevents employees from "hearing from all sides before they vote."

The City Council approved the ordinance last month at the urging of local labor unions that have accused Comcast of thwarting employees' efforts to unionize.
