In what was billed "Day of Outrage 2," the Transit Workers Union Local 100 "Took It to the Bridge" yesterday afternoon -- and all the way to City Hall.
In spite of the drizzle, hundreds gathered in Downtown Brooklyn at Cadman Plaza West and Montague Street, heard fiery speeches, then marched along Cadman Plaza, over the Brooklyn Bridge and into Manhattan.
The union is angry at the MTA, which is appealing an arbitration panel's binding decision to give transit workers 11 percent wages spread over three years. (Some legal details here.)
Union members blame Mayor Bloomberg, who has spoken out aggressively against the raises, according to the NY Times.
