The TWU Fought Hard for Stimulus Bill, Encouraged by Results

The TWU Fought Hard for Stimulus Bill, Encouraged by Results

Image

Dear Jeffery,

 

The TWU has spent the past few months working diligently to ensure today’s stimulus bill was passed. The International has been lobbying the Congress ever since March on direct aid to our sectors to ensure that our members are kept on payrolls. This work culminated in five relief and aid bills totaling nearly $4 trillion in spending. Including tens of billions for our rail, train, airline, and services sectors. This money also included unprecedented labor protections never seen before.

 

Even though the stimulus does not include all the funding we requested to assist our members across all divisions who have been working the front lines of this raging pandemic, it will provide much needed relief.

 

The bipartisan legislation contains about $900 billion in relief for pandemic, including $15 billion for airlines through the payroll support program, $14 billion for transit funding, $1 billion for Amtrak, and $2 billion for school buses and other neglected modes of transportation. All this funding comes with unprecedented, strong, labor protections which ensures that workers are the primary beneficiaries of federal support.

 

“The TWU fought for and won jobs for our members. Nearly every TWU member will either stay at work or be recalled from furlough thanks to this legislation. We didn’t just win money, we won stability for our members at work with this deal,” said International President John Samuelsen.

“Our members have been on the frontlines of fighting the coronavirus and this deal recognizes their sacrifices. We needed more funding to keep our transportation system moving and this bill is going to make that happen,” said International Executive Vice President Alex Garcia.

“This is a bill for essential workers. We worked with Democrats, Republicans, and everyone in between to make sure that TWU members can provide for their families and we won,” said International Secretary-Treasurer Jerome Lafragola. 

 

Our members have endured tragic losses, have sacrificed and suffered. Now there appears to be some light at the end of the tunnel. I am happy and thankful that our members will have the funding and protections needed to ensure they are able to continue to support their families and perform their essential duties," said International Administrative Vice President Curtis Tate.

 

“TWU has been leading this fight since June. Congress works slow and we’ll need to be back at it again next year, but this gives our members the money and protections we need to start delivering the covid-19 vaccine in the coming months,” said International Administrative Vice President Mike Mayes.

TWU Endorses Danielle Cohen Higgins for Miami-Dade County Commission February 6, 2020

Danielle Cohen Higgins knows what it means to work hard and fight for a better future.

Danielle Cohen Higgins for Miami-Dade County Commissioner

Danielle Cohen Higgins knows what it means to work hard and fight for a better future. Born at Jackson Memorial Hospital after her family immigrated from Jamaica to Miami, Danielle began her life in South Dade living in what is now a Section 8 Housing Complex named Milton Manors. She lost her father at the age of 8, and was raised by a single mother who takes the Metro Mover and Metro Rail to work every day.

Despite these obstacles, Danielle fought on. She studied hard and graduated Sunset Senior High School in the top 2% of her class. After receiving a scholarship to the University of Florida, Danielle would become the first person in her family to graduate from college. In 2006, she would earn her Juris Doctorate from the Florida State University School of Law and was admitted as an attorney at the age of 24. She is married to the love of her life, Mark, whose support is unwavering. She has one charming and brilliant son, Ari and a new beautiful baby girl named Sloan.

What Transit Maintenance Workers Need to Know About COVID-19

Miami transit workers call facility ‘Little Wuhan'...


"Bravo does not really care about the employees. We had to sue two months ago to get protective equipment like masks. Even now they’re not doing enough.”

Workers at Miami’s largest public transit facility have given the William Lehman Center a grim nickname: “Little Wuhan.”. The Florida city is now the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak, with Miami-Dade County recording more than 80,000 cases of COVID-19 and at least 1,270 deaths. Many of the 4,000 workers at...

What Transit Maintenance Workers Need to Know About COVID-19

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness caused by a virus called SARS-CoV-2. Symptoms often include a fever, cough or shortness of breath. Our understanding of how the virus spreads is evolving as we learn more about it, so check the CDC website for the latest information. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person:

  • Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
  • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks.

Recent studies indicate that the virus can be spread by people before they develop symptoms (pre-symptomatic) or who never develop symptoms (asymptomatic). It also may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes. However, this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads. Older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions may be at higher risk for more serious complications from COVID-19.

CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, especially in areas of significant community-based transmission. Cloth face coverings may prevent people who don’t know they have the virus from transmitting it to others. These face coverings are not surgical masks or respirators and are not appropriate substitutes for them in workplaces where masks or respirators are recommended or required.

As a transit maintenance worker, how can I protect myself?

For transit maintenance workers, potential sources of exposure include close contact with a coworker with COVID-19, contacting surfaces touched or handled by a person with COVID-19, or by touching your mouth, nose, or eyes.

  • Limit close contact with others by maintaining a distance of at least 6 feet, when possible.
  • Avoid touching surfaces often touched by transit passengers.
  • Practice routine cleaning and disinfection of frequently touched surfaces following the directions on the cleaning product’s label.
  • Proper hand hygiene is an important infection control measure. Wash your hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol.
  • Key times to clean hands in general include:
    • Before, during, and after preparing food
    • Before eating food
    • After using the toilet
    • After blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing

Monorail Project Faces New Hurdles After County Ethics Report

Monorail Project Faces New Hurdles After County Ethics Report

United Teachers of Dade started this petition to Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez and  While positive COVID-19 cases are increasing in our community daily and disparately affecting minority communities nationwide, Mayor Carlos Gimenez is moving towards opening Head Start programs throughout Miami-Dade County and exposing our youngest—possibly most vulnerable—students and families to harm.

Tuesday, the Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners could take a second look at a massive transit plan crossing from the City of Miami to Miami Beach

It’s a controversy that’s dragged on for two years. Now, ethics investigators file their report on a meeting in Asia, much of it shielded from public view. NBC 6 Investigative Reporter Phil Prazan takes a look at how this could scrap a $700 million transit plan in the county.

The $770 million plan known as “Baylink” faces another hurdle - this one of transparency and public trust - after a county ethics report, stern words from the county’s inspector general, and a call to scrap the plan by the Commissioner representing Miami Beach.

In May, the Board approved Mayor Carlos Gimenez’s administration to review the plan and begin low-level negotiations with a business group based on a proposal by the Miami Beach Monorail Consortium, a group led by infrastructure developer Meridiam, an Asian casino-entertainment developer Genting Group, and Aqualand Development. Genting and Aqualand are minority partners.

Genting Group owns the former-Miami Herald location along Biscayne Bay in the hopes to develop the land and have it be the launching station for the Baylink transit project.

Moreover, children have now started to fall sick and die even though they were initially thought to be immune to COVID-19. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization have dubbed this condition "multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children."
