'No Zeroes For Heroes': TWU Demands New Contract

By

Chanting “No zeroes for heroes!” a couple of thousand members of Transport Workers Union Local 100 rallied outside MTA headquarters in Lower Manhattan October 29, marking the first anniversary of Hurricane Sandy. Transit workers’ efforts revived most of the city’s subway system within days of the storm. But the MTA is currently offering Local 100 a new contract with three years of zero percent wage hikes plus increased health care costs and changes to work rules. The union has rejected the offer. (The sign in the photo above says, “Next Time Your Tunnels Flood, Call Your Accountant.”)
