Sal Albanese, Democratic mayoral candidate and former City Council Member from Bay Ridge, will join the drivers and matrons of striking Local 1181 of the Amalgamated Transit Union and their allies in a unity march across the Brooklyn Bridge today, followed by a rally at City Hall.
Muster will begin at 12:30 PM at Cadman Plaza in Brooklyn Heights. The march will step off at 1:30 PM and cross the bridge, ending with the City Hall rally.
ATU is calling on Mayor Bloomberg to broker a fair
