From TWU Local 100:



Next Tuesday, May 4th at Penn Station at 5pm Local 100 and many transit unions are uniting to say NO to transit cuts and layoffs. Every single transit worker must be there! (see flyer at bottom and/or open attachment).

The layoffs will affect every single transit worker, whether or not they received a layoff letter, young or old. This is a frontal attack on the future of Local 100. If layoffs and massive job cuts happen, not only will everyone’s seniority be set back years in Station, but the negotiating power of local 100 will be greatly undermined at contract time – that means wages, health benefits and even pension rights!

If these layoffs happen the MTA and their puppet masters in Albany will say that Local 100 will accept anything at contract time.  The MTA will think that all they have to do is threaten us with more layoffs and we will accept zeros.

Do you want this to happen? Do you want a future for you and your family? Join us next Tuesday – no excuses this time!

Please download the attached TWU flyer and make copies for coworkers. You can also go to the TWU hall at 64th Street and West End Avenue to get flyers (please first call the TWU at 212-873-6000 to check on what’s available).

See you at this historic transit worker rally. Lets scare the hell out of ‘em!
