Beware of Counterfeit Contract Flier

TWU Local 100 President Tony Utano issued the following statement after a counterfeit contract rally flier appeared on social media:

“Someone took an official TWU flier and doctored it by changing the date and time of the rally, and then circulated it on social media. This phony flier should be ignored.  Those who are perpetrating this hoax are in violation of the TWU Local 100 By-Laws for misappropriation of the union logo.

"The reason for this intentional deception is to confuse the membership and undermine the union’s efforts to win a fair contract for transit workers. October 30th is the official TWU Local 100 contract rally at 5:00 pm outside 2 Broadway.  This is the only rally sponsored and supported by the union."

Local 100 secured coverage from news channels CBS2, NBC4 , WPIX11 and Fox 5; The City, an on-line news publication staffed by veteran NYC reporters; The New York Post and The Staten Island Advance.
