Mayor Bloomberg Provokes School Bus Strike, Hurting
Workers, Parents and Children
with
Richard Gilberg, Attorney, ATU Local 1181
and
Jimmy Hedge, Exec. Board Member, ATU Local 1181

Union busting is disgusting. NYC's Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1181,
representing school bus drivers, escorts, and mechanics was forced onto
picketlines to save its very existence, due to Mayor Bloomberg's insistence
on removing Employee Protection Provisions from contract language
affecting the 9,000 workers. This change would impact current and future
union members, allow companies to low bid contractors due to cheap labor,
and put 150,000 children’s lives in the hands of inexperienced drivers to
navigate the hectic streets of NYC. This is a lose lose situation for union
members and parents and children!
