An arbitrator sided twith TWU Local 100 and ordered the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to implement a job pick for approximately 1,500 CTA’s in the Stations Department, President Richard Davis announced.

For nearly a month, the MTA refused to put the cleaners’ work assignments into effect, apparently in a fit of anger over a lawsuit the union filed on behalf of elevator operators in Washington Heights. But Arbitrator Howard Edelman, after hearing legal arguments from both sides, directed the MTA to implement the CTA job pick by August 20.

“The MTA was playing games, messing with our members’ lives, and we weren’t going to stand for it,” Davis said. “We brought this case and won on the merits.”

“The MTA is wildly out of touch on this issue,” Local 100 President Richard Davis said. “Riders want more uniformed staff in the subway, not less, especially in these stations, which are 15 to 20 stories below ground and require take an elevator to get in or out. This is a win for both riders and the union.”

For the first time in decades, the NYPD Transit Bureau will have officers in a dedicated unit focusing on buses – a move TWU Local 100 has been urging Mayor Adams and the NYPD to take to deter Bus Operator assaults.

The officers will accompany MTA Eagle Team security inspectors as they conduct fare-evasion enforcement along certain bus routes. The enforcement effort will target geographic areas, or “hubs,” selected in part because of their high rate of farebeating, officials said at a press conference in Brooklyn on Thursday.

“This definitely is a step in the right direction,” John Chiarello, Local 100’s Safety Director and Secretary-Treasurer, said of the joint MTA-NYPD initiative. “We hope it’s just the start of bigger things to come.”

MTA Approves Contract

The MTA board formally approved the new Local 100 contract. Board members voted on the package during the Executive Session of the Authority’s regularly scheduled monthly meeting at 2 Broadway. The next step is for the MTA and union to establish implementation dates for the wage-rate increases and some of the other improvements in the package. Local 100 will publicize those details once they become available. The contract requires the MTA provide members the $3,000 Essential Worker Bonus payment in September. Local 100 leadership is discussing with the MTA how members can take advantage of different pay-out options. You will have choices, including the ability to roll the bonus over into your MTA 401(k) account or 457 plan.
