ATU 192 bus workers from AC Transit and ATU 1555 BART transit workers and their supporters spoke out at the AC board of directors meeting on June 26, 2013 in Oakland. Workers face more concession demands and horrendous health and safety commissions.
ATU 192 AC Transit and ATU 1555 BART workers and their supporters joined together on June 26, 2013 at the AC Transit board of directors meeting to talk and speak out about the conditions they face on the job. They protested the effort by AC managers and most of the AC Board of Directors to force more concessions and givebacks on them after previous concessions. ATU 192 union contracts expire on July 1, 2013. Many workers spoke eloquently about the dangerous and hostile work environment that they face including the inability to have regular bathroom breaks even though this is required under the law by Ca Osha. AC workers demanded justice and respect for the work that they do.
ATU 1555 BART workers also said that they face similar conditions and attacks on their rights and conditions.
