Members of the Transport Workers Union (TWU) claim that the MTA is storing dead bodies in break rooms after they have been recovered from subway tracks.
The story was first broken by The Chief-Leader, a newspaper that specializes in labor union coverage.
“You have pieces, you have blood spatter,” said Derek Echevarria, the vice president of TWU Local 100. “It could be any contamination or disease.”
Officials for the transit union say employees are subjected to seeing both body parts and whole bodies out in the open without warning.
The group’s vice president said leaving the bodies out is not only disrespectful to the deceased and their families, but the discoveries often leave workers traumatized.
“These are bathrooms, facility rooms, break rooms — anybody can just walk in without notice,” Echevarria said. “And that is another part of ending the service, because they’re usually sent home by what they’ve seen, what they’ve touched.”
That headline is not clickbait. The MTA literally has dead bodies sitting in their break rooms. Is there an organization more poorly run than the MTA? I put them right up there with ISIS in regards to organizations that are trying to fuck people over. MTA is obviously number one on that list because at least ISIS doesn’t store dead bodies in their break rooms.
It’s literally impossible for a train to show up on time these days and now we know why. These employees can’t get to the trains because they’re stepping over dead bodies left and right at HQ. Imagine going to work and having to move a dead body over so you can open the drawer that has sugar for your coffee.
The MTA is the WORST.
