TWU Local 100 Members Honored by MTA Medals of Excellence

THURSDAY, JANUARY 31 -- 40 transit workers, most members of TWU Local 100, were honored by TWU Local 100 President Tony Utano, NYCT President Andy Byford, and others at the Authority's annual Medals of Excellence ceremony held at 2 Broadway. Among those honored were Local 100 members who saved the lives of colleagues, who evacuated passengers from subway trains, and who confronted criminals on buses to protect riders. In this video, President Utano gives his remarks, and we hear the dramatic story of how a Plant and Equipment Maintainer saved the life of a co-worker.
