Over 100 East Bay ATU 192 transit workers and supporters rallied on December 4, 2021 at Oakland City Hall to demand hazard pay for the dangerous work they are doing during the pandemic.

They reported on the dangerous conditions and the fear that they have of also infecting their families and relatives.

The AC Transit Board of Directors has received $150 million in Covid funding but refuses to use it for hazard pay. Workers and unionists from other transit agencies attended and spoke at the rally.

Speakers also discussed the anniversary of the 1946 Oakland general strike which was the last general strike in the United States.
