Union Busters Shut Down 100%

More than 500 militant Boston school bus drivers from Steelworkers Local 8751 and supporters achieved 100-percent shutdown of First Student, Inc.’s union-busting “summer bid” and ramped up the struggle for contract justice. Supporters included City Councilor Charles Yancey, the Greater Boston Labor Council, Massachusetts AFL-CIO, UNITE-HERE Local 26, International Action Center and others. Local 8751 once again demonstrated to First Student and their City government co-conspirators the unbeatable power of “old school” union solidarity!
