TWU Strikes, Nerds Hoof It
At 3am this morning, Roger Toussaint, president of Local 100 of the Transport Workers Union, announced that New York City transit workers would strike for a fair contract. Toussaint said,
We call on all good-willed New Yorkers, the labor community, and all working people to recognize that our strike is their fight and to rally in our support with activities and events in solidarity, and to show the M.T.A. the T.W.U. does not stand alone.Nerds on strike will hoof it around town in solidarity (alas, even if that means trekking across the Brooklyn Bridge). No doubt Nerds will be spotted on transit workers' picket lines across the city as well. All good wishes to the TWU in their fight. Union power!
