Motivate bike share workers in San Francisco ratified their one-year contract extension with the TWU in a crushing 91-6 vote on November 21.
The one-year extension is a local supplement to the national contract they adopted. The contract settlement includes significant raises, strong safety language and fair access to training opportunities.
“I strongly believe that all my brothers and sisters in this newly formed Bay Area bike share union are proud to be members of the TWU: an organization that has historically been at the forefront of the fight for equality in the workplace, and has spoken out against discrimination on race, job title and ethnicity since its founding,” said Stan Jones, a bike share worker in the unit. “Union membership ensures that all its members have their effort and work valued fairly and equitably – and will always be treated with dignity and respect.”
