The 30,000-member Transport Workers Union Local 100, which represents bus and subway workers, endorsed the Democrat and former city controller over the former MTA boss, who resigned in December to run on the Republican ticket. Lhota was not invited to apply for the endorsement, a source said.

Transport Workers Union Local 100, which represents bus and subway workers, has decided to endorse Democrat Bill Thompson for mayor, the Daily News has learned.

The union, which has 30,000 members, will make an official announcement at City Hall on Tuesday, a source said.

Former MTA Chairman Joseph Lhota, who resigned in December to run for mayor as a Republican, was not invited to apply for the endorsement, the source said.

Before leaving the transit agency, Lhota unsuccessfully negotiated with the TWU for months to try and nail down a new union contract.
