*** ATTENTION ALL MOW & STATION MAINTENANCE MSII's ***
*** Up-dated May 1, 2015 ***
In April we filed a petition with the Public Employees Relation Board (PERB) seeking representation of the MSII's in subways. A conference has been scheduled for Friday, May 22nd. We hope that at the conference we will be granted voluntary recognition by PERB and the TA based on the strong showing of interest we have among the eligible MSII's.
If you haven't already signed up, please down load a representation card and mail it back to us!
For the past two months we have been organizing the MSII’s in MOW and Station Maintenance Departments. At this time, a majority of the eligible MSII's have signed representation cards to join our Union. It has recently come to my attention that the SSSA has also begun an organizing campaign for this group as well. Having a newly invigorated leadership in the SSSA is a positive change that we hope will eventually benefit all of the supervisors working for the Authority.
The advantages of becoming a member of TWU Local 106 are that we can offer you something that the new leadership at the SSSA simply cannot and that is a proven record of success and the fact that we DO NOT represent Level I Supervisors in MOW or subways. Our Union was established in 1954, making us the oldest and most experienced Supervisors Union on the property. I have been an Officer of this Union for 18 years and the President for five years. As President, I have negotiated 10 collective bargaining agreements, including an interest arbitration award and a historic initial contract for the MTA Bus Supervisors that included raises of over 43%. Making promises are easy; securing a collective bargaining agreement is difficult and we have the knowledge, experience and a proven record of RESULTS.
