Statement on Safety Issues on Metro Bus in Southeast DC
We believe that the safety of the operators, the majority of whom are our members, is paramount to a functional and safe system.
We are impressing upon WMATA to do everything it can to insure the safety of the bus operators, including cancelling service, if necessary.
With this incident, we are reminded of the need for an increased police presence on Metro buses. Bus operators deserve the peace of mind to know that they are safe, so that they can do their job and make it home to their families. Peace of mind is an essential part of a safety culture.
All of these safety issues affect both operators and passengers, and for that reason, we all share concern.
Time to Get the
We need your help to tell Mayor Muriel Bowser, the DC Council, and DDOT that the time for action on the streetcar is now. No more costly delays, no more worker intimidation. Fix it, staff it, start it!
