Greece's Radical Left Coalition SYRIZA Leader Alexis Tsipras in NY
Says No to Anti-Austerity Politics
Alexis Tsipras, member, Hellenic
parliament, pres. of the Synaspismos
political party since 2008, head of the SYRIZA parliamentary group since 2009 and leader of the opposition since June 2012

The Radical Coalition of the Left (Syriza) became Greece's second-largest party following its dramatic success in parliamentary election's. It has campaigned steadfastly against the recovery blueprint for Greece drawn up by the European Union (EU) & International Monetary Fund (IMF). The party is led by the country's youngest political leader, Alexis Tsipras. Tsipras talks about the unpopular EU-IMF plan, known in Greece as the ''memorandum'' & says that the election result represented radical change in both Greece & Europe, showing that people are not prepared to settle for "barbarous memorandums" and bailouts.
ATU Local 1181 Strike Update
Jimmy Hedge Executive Board Member/Delegate, Amalgamated Transportation Union (ATU) Local 1181

Members of Local 1181 have been on strike, walking picketlines, with the weather in the teens since Wed., Jan.16 in protest of NYC's most recent special education contract bid, which would exclude their Employee Protection Provision (EPP). The bid fails to protect both special education students, & NYC's most experienced and safe drivers and escorts. Local 1181 members all come from modest means, and keeping their EPP's, their job security is about maintaining their livelihood and their union.
