Bus drivers and passengers join forces

“Community groups, often calling themselves bus riders unions, are popping up all over the country”, Labor Notes reports. Organizers ‘jump on buses’ to talk to to passengers about bus service. Increasingly, they join forces with bus drivers to fight against cuts that lead to fewer busses running a route or entire routes being cancelled. Sometimes, bus operators try to pit drivers and passengers against each, for example by cutting services and blaming union wages and benefits.
