Long Island School Bus Strike Ends
From the beginning, Local 252, along with TWU International leadership, sought a speedy resolution to this dispute so members could continue to serve the community and provide safe transportation to the children in the affected districts. Together, TWU members from across every division stood up and took action against a corporate bully who showed no regard for the working men and women of Long Island. We’re pleased to announce that Baumann and Son’s latest offer includes critical improvements for Local 252 members, such as guaranteed work weeks and charter pay increases, as well as wage increases and other gains. The membership will vote on the agreement tomorrow.Find out more on our website.
Political Victories for TWU
Election Day 2017 saw some key victories for workers up and down the local, state and national ballot. In New York and New Jersey in particular, TWU turned out big, helping elect New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy and defeat the Constitutional Convention ballot question in New York. These wins wouldn’t have been possible without the TWU’s massive organizing and mobilization efforts, and our continued commitment to showing up for the fights that matter.
TWU Fights to Stay at the Wheel
Driverless buses have come to Columbus, Ohio, home of Local 208. These buses could have massive impacts on the transportation industry and the traveling public - potentially leading to the loss of 4 million jobs. Ohio has almost 17,000 bus drivers, and tens of thousands of family members rely on these jobs. The TWU will fight tooth and nail to defend our members' livelihoods and our riders' safety.Learn more on Local 208's Facebook page.
