County Executive Chris Abele & the Milwaukee County Transit System are once again trying to play with the lives of some of Milwaukee’s most respected public servants who go above and beyond to make Milwaukee move forward every day. Milwaukee transit workers have been in contract negotiations for over a year. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
Milwaukee transit workers need:
SAFETY – More proactive safety measures need to be put in place to protect transit workers and riders. Driver training is also a major safety concern. Transit workers must be trained by experienced drivers, not computer programs.
HEALTH – Transit workers suffer greater rates of illness than workers in many other industries and occupations. The additional deductibles, premiums, and co-insurance could result in workers paying thousands more in out of pocket expenses every year.
RAISES – Transit workers are asking for a modest 1.5% raise and a cost of living increase to keep up with the inflation.
