Michael Carrube
Subway Surface Supervisors Association

Mike Carrube has been on a mission since taking office — to build the Subway Surface Supervisors Union into the strongest, most powerful voice in the MTA for all the members and their families. - And he is well on his way to achieving this goal. Under Carrube’s leadership, the SSSA is engaging in vigorous contract enforcement and organizing the unorganized.

Mike has spent his whole career preparing for the challenges of Union leadership. He knows, first-hand, what members can accomplish when they are united. He is leading the fight to build dignity and respect for all members.


Mike hired on with the New York City Transit Authority in 1989 as a Conductor. It didn’t take him long to see that something was not right on the job. He was appointed shop steward and safety representative for TWU. And then elected to Chairman in 1997-2003. Mike was promoted to Asst. Train Dispatcher in 2007. Mike saw the many problems his fellow supervisors faced and he knew he had to get involved in fixing the injustices. He was elected to Section Vice President in 2010 and then elected to SSSA President in 2014.
