  • Are you and your fellow transit workers dissatisfied?
  • Does your employer pay you less than a living wage?
  • Is your health care plan useless?
  • Are your vacation days disappearing?
  • Will you ever be able to retire?
  • Are you and your fellow workers tired of working for an abusive or inconsiderate boss?

ATU members enjoy the benefits of union organization – above average wage rates, legally enforceable union contracts and collectively bargained agreements, real and affordable benefits, protection from unfair discipline or sudden employer changes to your wages and working conditions.
