NOV. 9 Solidarity Day with Boston School Bus Drivers
Veolia fired two more union leaders: Recording Secretary Andre Francois and 3 time President Garry Murchison as well as unjustly disciplining 864 other drivers.
On November 1, Steve Gillis and Steve Kirschbaum were fired.
On Saturday, November 9, 2013 the fightback to reinstate the fired bus drivers continued with a rally at the Veolia Corporation’s Boston Headquarters. This video shows the broadening of the movement and the spirited and lively participation of the bus drivers and their supporters. The discriminatory targeting of these particular leaders represents a calculated effort on the part of Veolia and Boston Mayor Menino to break the organizational backbone and infrastructure of the union. Boston City Councilor Charles Yancey has called for a hearing to investigate Veolia’s labor practices and Mayor Menino’s role.
