Kingsbridge Boss Finally Suspended in Licking Incident

Jenkins immediately reported the incident to management, which “investigated” but took no action.

Local 100 elevated the fight publicly on May 21 when Local 100 President John Samuelsen led dozens of angry TWU Local 100 members into the MTA’s lobby at 2 Broadway to tell a press conference that this disgusting act of sexual harassment had been ignored by management.

Samuelsen demanded that the MTA take immediate disciplinary action against the supervisor.

After Jenkins outed the Transit boss, two other women and one male came forward with additional allegations of sexual harassment against the same Supervisor. Management transferred the Supervisor from Kingsbridge to West Farms in an effort to mitigate the union’s charges, but Local 100 pressed forward.

Two weeks ago, State Senator Adriano Espaillat and community activists, joined President Samuelsen and dozens of Bus Operators outside Kingsbridge Depot to denounce management foot-dragging on the case.

Public Advocate Bill de Blasio lined up with the union demanding action in a letter to MTA Chair Joseph Lhota.

We’ll keep you posted.
