Bus Rider United is a coalition group that the Labor Education Center helped form with the Community Economic Development Center and the two unions of bus drivers and bus maintenance workers in Fall River and New Bedford (ATU 174 and 1037). Ultimately the bus riders organized, with organizational supporters, and spoke with a united voice.
Bus Riders United represents hundreds of bus riders in the Fall River, Dartmouth, and New Bedford area and has the following current coalition partners:
Arnold M. Dubin Labor Education Center, Amalgamated Transit Union Local 174, Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1037, Community Economic Development Center of Southeastern MA, Coalition for Social Justice, and Hands Across the River Coalition.
The Labor Education Center stands in support of our bus drivers.
