We know our most important job is to make sure everyone gets home safely at the end of the day. It’s our top priority on the job site, and it should be the top priority for our public transportation system.
That’s why we stood in solidarity with MBTA maintenance workers this week to protest the unsafe staffing levels that have caused a system-wide safety crisis.
The MBTA is currently among the nation’s worst for train derailments, putting passengers and workers at risk — all while a new report shows that Governor Baker has cut the MBTA maintenance workforce by 20%. It’s crucial that the MBTA increase the number of trained, front-line workers.
We’re proud to stand with our fellow workers for safe and reliable public transit.
