Union Announces Winner of our Trash Train Contest

DECEMBER 10 -- TWU Local 100 Administrative Vice President Nelson Rivera announced the winner of our trashtrain.net contest at the Union Hall, presenting a check for $500 to CTA Tania Garcia, out of Pelham Barn, who snapped the photo of feces between cars on the #6 train. Brother Rivera explains how dirty cars -- the MTA said that over 2,000 had been isolated due to soiling this year -- inconvenience riders and cause train delays because they must be taken out of service. And that in turn results in rider anger against train crews and Cleaners. Local 100 started the contest at www.trashtrain.net in October to bring attention to the MTA's elimination of certain Cleaner jobs at terminals.
