It is in this tradition that ATU Local 998 is planting 92 red tulip bulbs in front of the union hall to commemorate the 92% of Milwaukee transit workers who stood strong and voted to reject an intolerable contract proposal that would have opened the floodgates to new lower-wage part time workers.
Every spring, when the red tulips unfold, we will be reminded of our unity, solidarity, and strength. Let’s celebrate our victory for years to come!
Planting will take place on Tuesday, November 3 at 10:00am. Everyone is welcome–no green thumb necessary.
