Yeah but that doesnt benefit us either the last lay off was in 2010 and everyone got rehired so if that really does happen were never gonna get called at that rate

there was a bulletin posted a few days ago regarding the media and DiBlasio or somebody saying financial cuts need to be made in the MTA and the last resort is laying people off..ill take a picture of it later..and again, 8 guys literally started 2 weeks ago so keep your hopes up..MTA is always saying they are broke and not to mention, TWU contract is up in June or July so it could be a bargaining point

They may actually be broke this time lol smh and what is the TWU contract

TWU is the transit workers union..TWU Local 100..they negotiate a new contract with MTA every few years..i took Promo. to Power Cable Maintainer..you have to wait for the exam to come out..its the same as any other civil service exam..you also have to be permanent..there was only 4 perm. helper who took last exam in November..4 helpers,14 prov. maintainers

Nah I don’t think it makes sense. U already took 8611. Your name is ahead of that. I mean unless u feel like u gotta a really low score and didn’t do good on spa but they will get to us. Trust me this time they are taking is driving me nuts too. They haven’t contacted back anybody yet.

Guy said they were still hiring people from last exam so I guess they still clearing up that list then ya and they still aren’t in the best finicial state I think so I don’t think we will hear anything for a min tbh. It’s not like they gonna ignore us. Patience is a virtue. It has been a long time.

Don’t seem to understand why they gave us SPA so quickly. Kind of confusing.
