We are fed up. We want respect, health & safety for ourselves and for our passengers.

We want true collective bargaining without a gun to our head.

Ø Operators protest MTA plans to dismantle MUNI as a public service.

Ø Operators are protesting the health and safety emergency at SF Muni.

Ø The MTA imposed a Mou which destroys our livelihood & cuts service.


Operators are joining the Taxi Cab Drivers. They are organizing a strike and rally against the MTA.

Ø The MTA imposes regulations on Cab drivers which destroy their livelihood.


MUNI management puts safety, safe equipment, & schedules on the back seat of the bus to balance the Budget.

Ø Unsafe equipment leaves the yard every day.

Ø This MOU allows MUNI management to blame drivers for Management’s failures.

Ø The MTA is cutting service, raising fares and endangering the passenger safety.

Ø Full time jobs mean full time service. Part-time jobs are a service cut to mid-day service.


REVENUE IS THE PROBLEM AT THE MTA,

NOT OPERATORS OR CABBIES

Ø The MTA has a revenue problem caused by Big Business which is concentrated in the SF Downtown Area & Mission Bay Development. They do not pay their fare share in taxes and transit fees but they receive great benefit from the service.

Ø MTA is attacking the cab drivers for the same reason as they attack the MUNI operators & City workers. The MTA is set up to pass costs onto the individual cabbie rather than make the Big Corporations pay taxes and fees.

Ø Don’t balance the budget of the backs of Drivers, City Workers, Riders or Cabbies.
