slate won the hotly contested TWU Local 100 elections Dec. 7 after a
multi-year campaign of criticizing the administration of Roger Toussaint
& Acting Pres. Curtis Tate over issues of union democracy & militancy.
Their first priorities will be getting the MTA to honor an arbitration award
granting union members 11% raises under a 3-year contract & fighting
cutbacks due to the reduced revenue to the MTA.

Where Was the Fed
Senator Bernie Sanders

Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke, in charge of the central bank since 2006,
could have demanded that Wall Street provide adequate credit to small
and medium-sized businesses to create decent-paying jobs in a
productive economy, but he did not. He could have insisted that large
bailed-out banks end the usurious practice of charging interest rates of
30 percent or more on credit cards, but he did not. He could have broken
up too-big-to-fail financial institutions that took Federal Reserve
assistance, but he did not.
