Mayor Berry would like to privatize the buses

City of Albuquerque, New mexico. USA Mayor Berry would like to privatize the buses, which means all drivers would be laid off and have to re-apply for the non-union jobs, which means no benefits and mostly part time. Cost for riders would double. However right now the drivers' message is not about possible privatization--but they will need our support to fight that down the road.

 

The bus drivers' demands are:

--fully staff bus security and don't outsource it to contractors

--pay bus drivers a higher wage

--recognize the need for safety for bus drivers

"Dude, that's like the most fly bus system I've ever used. Freakin WIFI enabled buses... Things would go to shit with a for profit motive." ~ Christel Davies
