On Wednesday the NYC Transport Workers Union (TWU) endorsed Bernie Sanders for President.
U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, who rode the subways growing up in New York City, was endorsed on Wednesday by the Transport Workers Union Local 100. The local labor union represents 38,000 workers across New York, including those who operate and maintain the New York City subway system.
“Brothers and sisters, there is no doubt that America needs a jolt, New York needs a jolt, working families need a jolt and business as usual politics are not going to give us the jolt that we need,” said TWU Local 100 President John Samuelson. “TWU has been fighting for transport workers for decades. In Bernie Sanders, we see a kindred spirit because Bernie Sanders has been fighting for American workers his entire life.”
