“The city’s business community and major employers agree with the TWU and other labor organizations that the mayor should increase police presence and mental health outreach in the transit system,” said Kathryn Wylde, President and CEO of the Partnership for New York City. “Harassment and intimidation on transit and in major transit hubs is a regular complaint of employees and has discouraged a return to the workplace. Increasing the sense of personal safety on transit is essential to the city’s recovery.”
