TCU Urges Federal Lawmakers to Increase Relief Funds for Transit Workers
May 12, 2020
TCU and the IAM joined a group of labor unions and federal lawmakers rallying for additional relief funds to support the nation’s transit workers.
TCU and IAM signed onto a letter urging House and Senate leaders to consider an additional $32 billion of relief for transit agencies in the next CARES Act bill.
“It has become clear that this ongoing crisis is much more costly than previously anticipated, and that public transportation will need another significant infusion to remain operational for the foreseeable future,” TCU and the other unions wrote in the letter.
Buses, subways and other public transit remain a vital necessity to front-line workers.
