Transit workers would have the right to strike under state legislation introduced by Sen. Jessica Ramos (D-13) in Albany on Thursday, March 16, 2023. (Bill No. S5785)
Assemblywoman Stacey Pfeffer Amato introduced the bill in the Assembly (index number pending).
Drafted at the request of the Transport Workers Union of America, and TWU Local 100, the bill would amend the Taylor Law so bus and subway workers employed by the MTA could engage in a work stoppage ­– if a lengthy process of negotiations and mediation fail to produce a contract governing wages, health benefits, and working conditions. Transit workers and TWU Local 100 would not be subject to the draconian penalties currently authorized by the Taylor Law if the legislation is adopted.
