Mayor Bloomberg Provokes School Bus Strike, Hurting
Workers, Parents and Children
ATU Local 1181 attorney Richard Gilberg
Jimmy Hedge Executive Board Member/Delegate, Amalgamated Transportation Union (ATU) Local 1181
Union busting is disgusting. NYC's Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1181,
representing school bus drivers, matrons, & mechanics was forced onto picketlines to save its very existence, due to Mayor Bloomberg's insistence on removing Employee Protection Provisions from contract language affecting the 9,000 workers. This change would impact current and future union members, allow companies to low bid contractors due to cheap labor, and put 150,000 children's lives in the hands of inexperienced drivers to navigate the hectic streets of NYC. This is a lose lose situation for union members and our families!
