Union Holds 9/11 Medal Ceremony at 9/11 Museum as Transit Workers Get Recognition

There were tears, and some smiles, at the National September 11 Memorial Museum Monday night as Local 100 for the first time held its annual medal ceremony at Ground Zero. More than 125 transit workers and family members came to the “civic temple” to see eight workers being honored for their rescue-and-recovery work at Ground Zero. All eight became ill from their service, and two passed away.
Joycelyn Lee accepted a medal on behalf of her deceased husband, Work Train Operator Eddie Lee. “Unfortunately, we lost him in 2016, but when I got the call he was going to be honored, my heart was like he was alive again,” Joycelyn Lee said. Lee, who moved out of state, said family and friends back home were equally happy Eddie, and his union brothers and sisters, were getting the recognition they so rightfully deserve. “They’re already asking, ‘When are you coming back [with the Union's medal for service],’ “Jocelyn Lee said. “It’s like an Olympic medal.”

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.”
