Statement of NYC CLC President Vincent Alvarez in response to Marc Molinaro's worker-bashing MTA plan

“Blaming the MTA’s problems on its working men and women at a time when violent assaults on MTA employees are on the rise—Marc Molinaro should be ashamed,” said Vincent Alvarez, President of the New York City Central Labor Council, AFL-CIO. “These workers do dangerous jobs every day in order to keep our city up and running. Governor Cuomo knows this, and the MTA’s fully funded subway action plan will invest in the system to improve service and reliability while treating the MTA’s workers and their families with fairness and dignity.”
