New Orleans RTA: Rehire Wrongly Terminated ATU Local 1560 President Valerie Jefferson!

RTA CEO Alex Wiggins: Stop the Union-Busting Frame-Up, Now!

Solidarity with ATU Local 1560 Bus Drivers, Frontline S/Heroes! Contract Justice, Now!

Whereas, The frontline drivers of ATU Local 1560 worked around the clock to rescue thousands of New Orleans residents and provide them with shelter during the ravages of Hurricane Ida, making s/heroic sacrifices and risking their own lives during the COVID-19 pandemic-era disaster, and,

Whereas, The Union had a signed agreement with the RTA regarding the hazard pay drivers deserved for their actions above and beyond their job descriptions and duties, and,

Whereas, RTA CEO Wiggins, who has shown his inability to work professionally with the drivers and their Union and should himself be immediately fired, not only reneged on the pay agreement, shorting drivers’ pay after the fact but then added injury to insult by firing the drivers’ democratically-elected President when she attempted to have a meeting with him about the pay agreement and has since illegally attempted to remove President Jefferson from her fiduciary responsibilities on the Taft-Hartley pension board, and,

Whereas, An Injury to One is An Injury to All of us on the frontlines working daily to provide essential, life-saving services during the worst global pandemic in over 100 years,

Be It Therefore Resolved That, USW Local 8751, representing 1,000 school bus drivers in Boston and Randolph, MA, demands that the New Orleans RTA immediately Rehire Wrongly Terminated ATU Local 1506 President Valerie Jefferson, and

Be It Further Resolved That, USW Local 8751 joins the ATU International in demanding the firing of union-busting RTA CEO Wiggins, and that the RTA immediately settle a just contract with Local 1560,

Be it Resolved That, Local 8751 provide Solidarity Resources to our siblings of ATU Local 1560 and President Jefferson to continue the fight until their rightful victory.

Passed unanimously at Local 8751’s membership at its meeting on September 23, 2021
