WorkWeek on 8/7/18 looked at the action of Washington DC ATU 689 transit workers to reject the use of segregated rail cars for racists, nationalists and fascists who are organizing a "Unite The Right" at the US capitol on August 12, 2018
ATU 689 president Jackie Jeter who discovered this plan and with the support of her local and labor rejected the management plan is interviewed.
ATU “Local 689 is proud to provide transit to everyone for the many events we have in D.C. including the March [for] Life, the Women’s March and Black Lives Matter,” Jeter said. “We draw the line at giving special accommodation to hate groups and hate speech.”
Jeter also discusses the effect of Janus and the attack on health and safety conditions of the transit workers.
