TWU to take 'hell' to MTA wage tiff

Vowing to "Give them a taste of hell," the union whose strike crippled the transit system in December 2005 is calling bus and subway workers to the barricades Tuesday night in its wage fight with the MTA.

 

The Transport Workers Union is planning a protest outside the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's midtown headquarters.

 

Leaders also plan a systemwide "day of outrage" for Oct. 14 - a call to arms on TWU Local 100's Web site.
