The Transit, Universities, Utilities, and Services Division (TUUS) is the union’s largest, representing bus and train operators, mechanics, engineers, supervisors, cleaners, ticket agents and other titles at some of the nation’s busiest public transit systems, including MTA (New York), SEPTA (Philadelphia), MUNI (San Francisco), COTA (Columbus), METRO (Houston), NICE (Long Island), Miami-Dade County Transit, and others.
This dynamic division also represents school bus drivers, para-transit and tour bus operators, as well as operations and maintenance workers at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, Brooklyn’s National Grid, Columbia University, Julliard, Barnard College, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, and in cities, towns, and municipalities around the country. The division spans both public and private employers, negotiating and administering many of the industry’s leading contracts, and setting the standard for 21st-century organizing, with a successful effort to unionize bikeshare workers in Boston, Chicago, New York, and Washington, D.C.
