Help ATU members impacted by the San Jose shooting

It has been a difficult year for transit workers.  But today hit especially hard.  The ATU suffered an incredible loss at a Santa Clara VTA rail yard where our Local 265-San Jose, CA members work. There were multiple fatalities and injuries. Nobody should ever have to worry about walking into their jobs and fear for their safety. Survivors of this horrific shooting will be dealing with the aftermath for a very long time.

Our members have always supported our brothers and sisters in dire need and now it’s time we show our support again. We call on all ATU Locals and members to help our San Jose brothers and sisters impacted by this tragic shooting by contributing through the ATU Disaster Relief Fund. Donations can be made online here or by mailing a check to:
