San Francisco TWU 250 A transit workers and mechanics
are under a vicious attack by the MTA management and
Mayor Ed Lee. Proposition G passed with the support
of Democratic party politicians like Scott Wiener, former
mayor Gavin Newsom and present mayor Ed Lee is aimed
at destroying the power of the transit workers.
Transit workers have faced speed ups and have to fight
to use a bathroom. Workers who complain to OSHA
about health and safety problems like Dorian Maxwell
are illegally fired by MTA management and Mayor Ed Lee.
Now they are demanding real wage cuts after a three year
wage freeze. There is an epidemic of workplace bullying against
the drivers and mechanics by MTA management to terrorize
and intimidate the workers.
This is coming after the number of billionaires in San Francisco
has reached 27 yet transit workers are told they have to
take pay cuts with hostile work conditions.
This is what provoked the sick-out at the beginning of
the month. All workers should have the right to withhold their
labor yet workers under the law are threatened with being fired
for even a sickout.
This forum will discuss what is happening at the MTA and
what transit and all workers can do about these increasing
assaults including building a media information campaign
to unite all working people.

Speakers, Discussion and Planning To Fight Back
