 December, 2013 

Boston, Mass  –  Friends, family, and community supporters make an appeal to support the “Boston School Bus 5” – a courageous group of union leaders who were unjustly fired in November after their co-workers staged a job protest against Veolia, the private company based in France that illegally locked out the bus drivers on October 8th, following repeated violations of their union contract. 

 Supporters are asked to:
  
Hands Off the School Bus 5! Stop Union Busting!

1)  Make a contribution – 

An avalanche of solidarity and support in the form of $10, $50 or $100 donations will make a huge impact in the lives of these bus drivers and their families in this trying time, providing them the material support to continue to fight these unjust firings and continue to struggle for justice  and dignity for school bus drivers.
 
Solidarity to Sustain the Struggle can also be sent by check and made payable to: 
“Friends of the School Bus 5” 
P.O. Box 141 
Stoughton, MA 02072 
(These gifts to the 4 fired union leaders’ families are not tax deductible.)
