SEIU 1021 speaks up for public transit in the Bay Area

On Monday, March 18, Transit Worker Appreciation Day, SEIU 1021 BART Chapter President John Arantes spoke in support of SB 1031, new legislation that would fund Bay Area public transit in a sustainable way and prevent service cuts. “A thriving and equitable California relies on public transit,” Arantes said.

Tell your elected official to support SB 532 to keep transit safe, accessible, and reliable

Public transit systems in the Bay Area, including AC Transit, BART, and SF Muni, are facing a fiscal cliff due to declining revenues from riders. Without an infusion of revenue, these agencies will be forced to implement drastic cuts that will hurt Bay Area residents who depend on public transit, harm efforts to reduce air pollution, and cost SEIU 1021 members at Muni and BART their jobs.
