Yesterday [Mon, Dec 27], USW Local 8751’s leadership met in contract negotiations with Transdev and Mayor Wu’s city hall and BPS representatives at City Hall. COVID-19 surging among us frontline workers was top of our agenda.
The Union began the session, which included Mayor Wu’s city hall and BPS representatives, stating our position that BPS should go remote in January due to the rapidly spreading Omicron variant that is sickening children and our families.
Last night, Transdev posted yet another positive case at work, dozens in recent weeks. Transdev and BPS continue to refuse the Union a full accounting, including BPS monitors.
We demand Mayor Wu immediately use her authority and provide a full report of C-19 in BPS’s transportation operations.
Starting in January, C-19 vaccinations & boosters (Pfizer, Moderna, and J&J) will be available to ALL BPS Transportation Workers and our families, no cost, rotating every Wednesday between Readville, Washington, and Freeport, 9:30 – 11:00 AM.
USW Local 8751 encourages everyone to heed medical advice and GET PROTECTED TODAY. While vaccinated people can test positive, get sick and spread C-19, those vaccinated rarely experience severe illness and death.
Staying up to date with vaccinations and masking are the best acts of solidarity that Local 8751 members can show our co-workers and communities we serve.
