Varlet | Attorney General Eliot "Strikebreaker" Spitzer and the MTA, issued court injunctions against the Transit Workers Union that will impose fines of $1 million dollars a day on the union! This is nothing less than a declaration of WAR against the working class in general, and particularly against the union movement. This conspiracy against the working class can and must be SMASHED through sympathy strikes to defend the TWU! If those fines are imposed, all the trade unions in the State of New York must be mobilized to SHUT DOWN THE STATE OF NEW YORK! more... 13 Comments

Workers World | The big bosses don’t care what kind of a world our children live in. They’re trying to impose a “two-tier” contract—lower pay and benefits for future employees. But the transit union is taking a stand for our sons and daughters. more... 7 Comments
Milt Neidenberg | The MTA, top Republican and Democratic city officials, and the major media are waging a frenzied anti-union campaign to get the workers to accept a two-tier wage contract that would create divisions within the union. However, a progressive group of City Council members from working-class neighborhoods held a press conference on Dec. 14 to say that any strike will be the responsibility of the MTA.

Revolutionary Transit Worker | Behind the MTA’s outrageous demands for givebacks stands Governor Pataki dreaming of running for President, and a capitalist class looking to make an example out of transit workers. Demanding that the next generation work harder for years longer and pay more for “benefits” is an attempt to divide Local 100. And it is a message to the entire working class that there will be no “American Dream” – future generations will have to work harder and longer for less and less to keep up the bosses’ profits. more... 4 Comments

Worker Freedom | On Nov. 1, Local 810 of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters lost an NLRB election for the roughly 300-worker transportation department of New York City internet grocer FreshDirect, LLC. The local had lost an election in 2004 for the same unit. Despite having won the support of over 100 workers who could have been organized into a powerful union presence, Local 810 abandoned the field after that election.

The public demands the right to a safe affordable ride. The millions of straphangers are inextricably tied to the transit workers and their union. The MTA is their enemy, too. more... 3 Comments
