Rally & Informational Picket This Monday (9/12)!
September 7, 2016
At this point, most of us have seen the news that MBTA leadership is targeting bus maintenance and operations for privatization.
For months, we have diligently and respectfully presented the facts — that privatizing operations like the Money Room and the MBTA Warehouse is wrong for the MBTA and wrong for Massachusetts. We need investment in our infrastructure, not another Keolis. We’ve worked to build our case in the press and with the public.
But last week’s report from the MBTA Fiscal and Management Control Board shows that we need stronger action. We want to show Massachusetts that it’s time to pay attention, step up, and stop privatization before it’s too late. Over the next few weeks, we’ve scheduled rallies, standouts and informational pickets, and we’re going to need you there.
Our first action is on Monday morning before the Massachusetts Department of Transportation Board meeting. Can you join us?
