At a packed December 11, 2014 membership meeting, Boston School Bus Drivers Union: USW Local 8751 voted unanimously to ask the United Steelworkers International to authorize a ULP (unfair labor practice) protected STRIKE against Veolia! … to print STRIKE signs, and put the company and city on notice that: NO Amnesty, NO Contract, NO Peace! …”We decided to settle all family business with this vile corporation, after exhausting all other remedies. We have built strong alliances and solidarity with forces across the city, and indeed, the country. “Justice for the many, justice for the free, let Veolia be paid in FULL, that’s just enough for me!” (from Team Solidarity FB.) Please continue to circulate & sign the PETITION to drop the outrages Union-busting charges against Steve Kirschbaum.
