I have just received some cheerful news from one of my wobbly friends!
It's official. North Smithfield School Bus Drivers & Aides have just
voted to be
represented by SEIU district 1199.
There were two unions on the ballot [SEIU 1199, Amalgamated Transit Union
(ATU), along with a choice of No Union.]
No run-off is necessary since SEIU 1199 received over 50% of the vote.
58% voted for 1199, 70% voted for a union.
North Smithfield drivers & aides now join in solidarity with Lincoln &
drivers & aides represented by 1199.
