MTA Statement on TWU Charges

The TWU charges are ludicrous. The MTA proposal to spend the surplus on fare initiatives, service improvements and the $450 million one time payment to pension funds is a carefully calibrated use of a non-recurring surplus. As far as specific proposals in the bargaining, it is simply too early in the process to comment publicly on items currently under discussion.
