TWU Local 100 is now the exclusive bargaining representative for Citi Bike workers, after Local 100 President and International Executive Vice President John Samuelsen signed a voluntary recognition agreement with the company on Tuesday night. After a months-long organizing drive — which found broad support among Citi Bike's 200 bicycle mechanics, dispatchers, call center operators and technicians — TWU is in uncharted territory, the first to unionize workers in the growing bikeshare industry.
On the thirteenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, we pay tribute to those who lost their lives and to the strength of the American spirit. Amid the horror of that day, 3,000 transit workers — members of TWU Local 100 — rushed to Ground Zero, serving as first responders and assisting in cleanup and recovery efforts throughout the days and weeks that followed.
"On Saturday, August 23, 2014, The TWU Texas/Oklahoma State Conference went to the Houston Food Bank (HFB) to volunteer as a part of our commitment to making a difference in our community through community service. As a state conference, it is important to stay politically active, and make a difference in working families' households." — TX/OK State Conference Chair LaTonia Benoit
