Membership Approves Four Year Contact with the MTA by a 2 - 1 Margin

JANUARY 9, 2020 -- Transit Workers approved the contract negotiated by TWU Local 100 with the MTA by a 2-to-1 margin, with 10,112 votes to 5,176, according to the American Arbitration Association, which tabulated the vote. The results were announced tonight at the conclusion of the count at the AAA office at 120 Broadway. "The MTA was determined to win huge concessions like doubling our paycheck deductions for healthcare, turning full-time jobs into part-time positions, and paying overtime after 40 hours instead of eight," said Local 100 President Tony Utano. "We did more than just hold our own. We moved forward."
