Muni Drivers Fight to "Save Our Ride!"
TWU-250a Nationwide Campaign to Save MUNI!
Tuesday, June 29, 12pm
Old Federal Building (Golden Gate Ave.)
San Francisco

The Transit Workers Union-250a along with it's National TWU representatives have lobbied and rigorously advocated for funding from the Federal government that puts stimulus "capital-project" money into local operation budgets (i.e. instead of having millions go into paying projects that benefit large corporate contractors, the money is used to maintain and enhance the existing systems).

Your own MUNI Drivers union, Local TWU-250a, has made numerous trips to Sacramento and Washington and are part of the national campaign to "Save Our Ride."

Speakers Include:

Harry Lombardo, TWU International Executive VP
James C. Little, TWU International President
Warren George, ATU International President

and Rev. Jesse Jackson

The TWU-250a has taken the high road and united with riders, drivers, community activists and other unions in order to advocate for MORE public transit funding.

Come out in support of public transit!
