Subway Scam Billboards Hit New York City

March 22, 2018  ·  11:07 am

The Center for Union Facts—a national union watchdog organization—has officially launched “Subway Scam,” highlighting the trade unions that have made New York’s subway system dirty, delayed, and dangerous. The new campaign specifically focuses on the Building and Construction Trades Council (BCTC) of Greater New York—namely BCTC President Gary LaBarbera—whose member unions’ expensive and wasteful contracts with the Metropolitan Transit Authority increase transit construction costs and take resources away from subway repairs and upgrades.

To mark the campaign’s launch, we have erected two billboards in Midtown, which you can see below. We are also running a full-page ad in today’s amNYNew York Post, and New York Daily News.
