TWU Local 100 Endorses Gibson For City Council

New York, NY – On the steps of City Hall, members of TWU Local 100 stood in support of Vanessa L. Gibson and endorsed her campaign to represent the 16th Council District in the Bronx.

"TWU stands up for the Bronx and I am thrilled to be here today to accept this endorsement from the Transport Workers Union Local 100" said Vanessa L. Gibson. "These are the workers who make it possible for New York to be a City on the move, that's why throughout my entire elected career I have stood with TWU Local 100 members who are truly the heart and soul of New York's public transit system."


TWU Local 100 is a chapter of the Transport Workers Union of America, and represents almost all of the employees who operate trains, maintain the trains and tracks, staff the token booths, clean platforms and subway cars, and service and repair mechanical equipment such as elevators and escalators. The union has 38,000 active members and 26,000 retirees.

Representing much of Council District 16 in the New York State Assembly for the last four years, Vanessa has supported TWU Local 100 on diverse issues such as retirement security for all public employees, reliable support for public transit and on the job workplace safety.

TWU Local 100 is supporting candidates like Vanessa L. Gibson because they have demonstrated the greatest knowledge and commitment to promoting our city’s Public Transportation issues” said President John Samuelsen. “We are confident that, once elected, she among others will work together to prioritize investments in safe, affordable, and reliable transit services in New York City.

Vanessa has also recently received the endorsement of 1199SEIU, the Working Families Party, Council of Supervisors & Administrators (CSA), Detectives’ Endowment Association, IBEW (International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers) Union Local No. 3, Mason Tenders District Council, New York City Central Labor Council, New York Hotel Trades Council, Plumbers Union Local No. 1, Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU), Teamsters Joint Council 16, Transport Workers Union, Local 100, United Federation of Teachers, and United Food & Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 1500.
