Track Worker Killed on the Job

Brothers and Sisters,

There was a terrible tragedy and one of our Brothers was killed on the job early this morning. He apparently fell and struck his head in a tunnel south of the 125th Street Station on the Lexington Avenue line.

A full investigation has begun to determine exactly how this happened. TWU Local 100 extends our deepest condolences and sympathies to the family and we will help them any way we can.
