In a year more noted for its sharp political divides, it is important that we come together as a union to celebrate what ties us together at TWU and what binds us as a nation.
 
This weekend while we celebrate our country’s birth, TWU International President Harry Lombardo has a special message for our members, many of whom are on the job this holiday. “As we celebrate our independence, let us please remember that independence and rights as citizens under our Constitution require us to be civically responsible. We have to exercise our rights in order to preserve them and that fight goes on every single day,” says Lombardo in a video message.

Victory for TWU: MTA Capital Plan Gets Funded

Earlier today, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, New York City Mayor de Blasio and Metropolitan Transit Authority Chairman Prendergast announced an agreement on funding for the MTA Capital Plan after weeks of vocal pressure from TWU. The union issued the following statement:

“This is an incredible victory for the thousands of transit workers whose jobs are directly impacted by the MTA Capital Plan, and for the millions of New York’s working families who use the bus and subway system every day.
 
“We owe a great debt of gratitude to Governor Cuomo for pressing this issue so hard and bringing it to a conclusion so that the MTA would not be forced to scale back the capital plan. Over three thousand TWU members earn their livelihoods keeping our transit system in a state of good repair, and any failure to properly fund it would have hurt workers and riders alike, to say nothing of the long term negative impact on the region’s economy.
