Subject: Arraigning Striking Transit Workers

For the third time since 1999, the transit workers are under vicious attack from the MTA, the Attorney General, and the Mayor (first Giuliani, now Bloomberg) — just as we were attacked during the 1999 ALAA/1199 strike.

In light of ALAA’s support for the TWU in the 1999 and 2002 contract battles, TWU Local 100 general counsel Terry  Meginniss has asked me to convey his request for our assistance in arraigning transit workers arrested during a strike.

If you do arraign (or otherwise learn of) such cases, please promptly notify Terry at 212-228-7727 (to ensure the message gets through, explain that you have information about a TWU arrest).
