Union Negotiates Extension of COVID Death Benefit | TWU Local 100

TWU Local 100 has negotiated a significant extension of our precedent-setting Covid-19 death benefit.

The original agreement with the MTA, providing $500,000 payments to the families of members who contracted the virus and died, expired April 13.

Payments will continue under the negotiated extension through August 31. Starting June 1, proof of vaccination or a “a valid, documented exemption” will be required for eligibility.
