Thousands of transit workers chanting “no contract, no peace” gathered outside the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s headquarters at 2 Broadway Oct. 29 to kick off Transport Workers Union Local 100’s contract campaign on the anniversary of Hurricane Sandy.

The union’s 34,000 members last received a raise in 2011, and have been working under an expired contract since Jan. 15, 2012, when both sides agreed to bargain past the deadline.

Transport Workers Union Local 100 President John Samuelsen used the storm’s anniversary as a rallying point to highlight his members’ role in providing city services.
