TWU parts ways with Eric Jaye after short partnership 

It must have not been fun while it lasted.

Just one week after local political guru Eric Jaye was hired to champion the cause of Muni’s operator union, the group has opted to part ways with the spin master, according to the organization’s president.

Facing a potential ballot initiative in November that would reform some of their work rules, the Transport Workers Union Local 250-A hired Jaye last Tuesday to help prep for the campaign battle.

However, TWU president Irwin Lum confirmed rumors today that the union would not be employing the services of Jaye, a one-time political advisor to Mayor Gavin Newsom.

The reasoning for Jaye’s departure?

Lum said union members wanted to “reassess their PR approach,” which apparently means an approach without Jaye.
