On Nov. 13, the TWU sent a letter to the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) urging them to uphold the worker protections that the TWU fought for during the FAST Act. As you recall, Congress enacted the FAST Act in 2015, which renewed public transportation programs (and Amtrak). The TWU successfully fought hard against schemes to privatize public transportation, and in doing so, we secured important worker protections. Our comments urge the FTA to make sure those protections are upheld.
