This year Veterans Day holiday is being celebrated on Friday November 10. The Union usually has its membership meeting the second Thursday of every other month, which would be the night before the holiday.
Massachusetts Governor, Charlie Baker, wants to privatize hundreds of MBTA bus maintenance services at the Lynn, Quincy and Boston facilities by bidding out jobs to for profit companies. This will affect MANY on the Unions at the MBTA, including our own.
From our friends at Union-Plus:
Unions have played an important role in the lives of America's workers since the early years of our country's history. Unions give their members the power to negotiate for better working conditions and other benefits through collective bargaining. Today, over 14 million American workers belong to unions.
