UFCW 1994 Urges Support of Super Shuttle Workers(Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)Citing a long history of worker abuse by Super Shuttle parent company Veolia International, UFCW Local 1994 MCGEO is asking area activists to urge Maryland legislators to support HB 917, which would force the company to negotiate with the drivers or lose their lucrative BWI contract. The Super Shuttle drivers endure working conditions the local likens to “indentured servitude,” working up to 17 hours a day, seven days a week, paying for their own gas and tolls, and “often come home at the end of the week having made no money, or worse, owing Veolia money!” When the drivers wanted the company to replace faulty dispatch equipment last year, Veolia “dragged its feet” and then fired two drivers when Super Shuttle drivers staged a rally at BWI, says Local 1994, adding that the company has locked out drivers in Boston and engaged in unfair labor practices in Phoenix.
