ATU Locals passing Workstation "Resolution to End Fatalties and Injuries Resulting from Poor Transit Bus Design"

125 years ago this month ATU was formed. One of our first fights was to get enclosed driver vestibules (workstations) on the streetcars we operated. Mindful of our history, what better way is there to celebrate our anniversary than to fight for a workstation to stop bus blind spot deaths, assaults on bus drivers and dangerous fumes.

ATU launched a Workstation Initiative Campaign. Locals will be putting forth the "Resolution to End Fatalities and Injuries Resulting from Poor Transit Bus Design" at Local union meetings.
