The TWU Are a Bunch of Rejects

The TWU membership rejected the proposal which was agreed to by the TWU and MTA leadership - ending the Transit Strike.

The agreement failed by 7 votes! Out of 22,451 votes cast - 11,227 voted to accept the contract and 11,234 voted to reject it.

Time to dust off your NFT - Strike Edition.

Update: The TWU rejected this fair contract just 2 days after the MTA started testing computer operated subways.
