Metrobus Workers’ Strike Stretches to 12 Days
Posted On: Nov 05, 2019
Nov. 5, 2019 | STRIKES | Some Metrobus workers in Northern Virginia were on strike for the 12th day Monday. The group of union members who work at WMATA’s Cinder Bed Bus Garage is protesting Transdev, a private company they say isn't treating them fairly. The strike has affected bus routes 17, 18 and 29 in Northern Virginia. Union members are asking that the private employer pays their workers the same rate as other Metrobus drivers in the area. They say workers employed by the private contractor are paid $12 per hour less than a regular WMATA bus operator who does the same work. The union also said Transdev charges workers a $6,000 deductible for their health insurance, leaves workers with “no hope” for retirement benefits and employs people part-time, even when they want full-time work… NBC Washington
