Take Action on Employees Protection Provisions (EPP) In Solidarity with ATU Local 1181-1061

Every morning, parents in New York watch their children get on the school bus, entrusting their safety to bus drivers, attendants, and mechanics. These workers have the responsibility of maintaining a secure and safe environment.

The restoration of the EPP will ensure that children’s safety is always in the hands of experienced, trained, and professional workers. The legislation requires bus companies to retain experienced workers, while also ensuring these workers are paid fair wages and receive benefits and job security that reflect their experience. ATU Local 1181-1061 asks allies to join them in telling the Department of Education to restore the EPP now. Sign the petition and share!
