TWU Local 101 Endorses Democrat Sal Albanese for NYC Mayor at February Section Meeting

Former City Council member Sal Albanese is shifting the debate among mayoral candidates to a serious discussion about the welfare of the city's working men and women, and their families. Albanese takes an uncompromising stand against political corruption, special interest group influence, and public servants serving corporate interests that undermine the well-being of the working class. A retired public school teacher, Albanese has gold-plated union credentials and understands the needs and vulnerabilities of the next generation. As a private-sector union, we join the Machinists, along with several public sector unions in supporting Albanese's candidacy and run for mayor.


TWU Local 101 Supports: The Workplace Bullying Law "S-4289" 

What is Workplace Bullying?

Workplace Bullying is repeated, health-harming mistreatment of one or more persons (the targets) by one or more perpetrators that takes one or more of the following forms:

  • Verbal abuse.
  • Offensive conduct/behaviors (including nonverbal) which are threatening, humiliating or intimidating
  • Work interference – sabotage – which prevents work from getting done.

Why is it a Problem?

It is a problem that has invaded the life of 37% adult Americans without invitation. In its more severe forms, it triggers a host of stress-related health complications -- hypertension, auto-immune disorders, depression, anxiety to PTSD. The person's immediate job and often career are often disrupted.
