Roger Toussaint, President of the Transit Workers Union (TWU)Local 100 directed the rank and file to return to their jobs as soon as possible. This three day strike interupted the city of New York by stranding 7 million commuters who rely on public transport every day. The business elites, the corporate press, the billionaire mayor and the conservative governor all attacked the TWU ruthlessly. They were threatened with jail time and multi-million dollar fines. The TWU Executive Board must now demand amnesty from these retaliatory actions on the part of the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) and their corporate allies.
