A subway cleaner underwent surgery at Jacobi Hospital in the Bronx Friday afternoon for injuries suffered during a brutal attack in the Bronx, Stations Vice President Robert Kelley reports. 

CTA Anthony Nelson was attacked outside the Pelham Bay subway station on the No. 6 line Thursday morning at approximately 9:30 a.m. Nelson suffered a broken nose and a broken collarbone. Despite those injuries, Nelson and another man held the assailant long enough for the police to arrive and make an arrest, Kelley said.“It’s amazing what he did,” Kelley said. “He must have been in a hell of a lot of pain.”

Kelley called on the authorities to throw the book at the assailant. “This is another outrageous incident of violence,” Kelley said. “We come to work to do a job, not be punching bags.”

Kelley has been at Jacobi Hospital with Nelson’s mother, Lisa, and other family members throughout their ordeal, along with other Stations Department reps. Mayor Adams called Lisa Nelson to inquire about her son’s condition. Lisa Nelson and Kelley expressed anger that an ambulance crew also brought the suspect to Jacobi Hospital, apparently for a psychiatric evaluation, and was in the ER at the same time as Anthony. 

 

Kelley said it added “insult to injury” and he would demand an explanation from paramedics.

Union Holds Press Conference to Commend Collecting Agent who Acted to Aid Police Officer

 

JULY 28 -- Stations Vice President Robert Kelley, joined by Secretary-Treasurer Richard Davis and more than a dozen other Local 100 members, heaped praise and thanks on the Collecting Agent who came to the aid of a police officer engaged in a violent struggle with an alleged fare-beater.

Appearing at the Union Hall Thursday morning, the Agent said he intervened after seeing the 16-year-old slam the officer to the ground and place the cop in a chokehold. “I was concerned about the safety of the officer, and for the public, if (the teen) grabbed his weapon,” the Agent, who requested anonymity, said.

New Promotional Opportunities Available in Stations Department


Additional training and promotional opportunities are now available to Station Agents and CTAs in the Stations Department, Vice President Robert Kelley announced.

After discussions with management, Station Agents have a path to becoming a Collecting Agent, which would mean a pay increase of $1.13 per hour, Kelley said. Transit will pick up the cost for you to obtain your CDL license and your gun permit.You must have three years of service, and your time and attendance will be reviewed by management to determine eligibility.

Cleaners, meanwhile, can obtain their CDL, also on the company’s dime, so they can potentially pick into driver positions in the refuse department. “This is all about giving more and expanded opportunities for the Stations Department,” Kelley said. “We want the membership to have opportunities for growth, both professionally and financially.”

Station Agents interested in applying for the Collecting Agent position, go to the MTA BSC portal: https://bit.ly/3PGVu7p

Cleaners interested in the CDL write a G2 to Marie Bernoff in Refuse.
