by signing this bill, ALL Federal funding for Public transportation, 45 million for our bus system, since federal funding is dependent on Employees receiving collective bargaining rights. Over 500 people at Madison Metro will be affected, when we are required to “completely restructure” the transit system. This means cutting routes, upkeep, and most importantly—- eliminating mechanics, janitorial, office staff…and making ALL driver’s positions part-time, thereby eliminating the need to offer any benefits at all.
Thank you so much for the solidarity. I’m an AFL-CIO child so I know how important this is for people. The mask that Scott put on this bill can not be denied. Thank you so much for the solidarity from MN, hope to see you soon!
