Unfortunately the popcorn burned & the drinks were flat after State Supreme Court Justice Bruce Balter of Brooklyn ruled against the Transport Workers Union Local 100’s attempt to restore their due checkoff power. The judge said he would like to see the 48 executive-board members promise not to strike again before the union would be out of the punishment phase from the 2005 transit strike.
Transport Workers Union Local 100 chief Roger Toussaint had this to say after the decision was announced:
Unfortunately this matter has become a political football. Transit workers will continue to meet the challenges and difficulties of this situation head-on.”
Leave it to the justice system to screw over the wrong party in a situation!
