International Per Capita Increase

Members of Local 1700 will see an increase in their monthly dues, because the International has a cost of living increase every July 1st. and at the last International Convention the delegates voted to increase the monthly per capita. The total per capita increase is $1.55/month. This increase was to provide more funds for training, research and organizing. Also, the International will be moving to the former Meany Center located in Silver Spring, MD. The International has pledged to fight all those who are trying to stifle pay and benefits for unionized workers.

President McCoy Looks at L.A. Terminal, Bolt Bus Contracts

Local 1700 members recently approved two contracts during some of the most hostile bargaining since the deadly strike of 1990-‘93. In February, terminal workers in Los Angeles held the line on work rights, but Greyhound's lowest paid employees only won limited economic relief. And in March, Bolt drivers approved a contract that gets much closer to the goal of being paid at a single rate for all time spent at work.

Bolt Drivers Ratify New Contract

A new agreement takes Bolt drivers from their current driving rate of $23.34 to $25.25 in four years, and reduces the number of wage rates to just two. The non-driving rate tops out at $13.75 and gets drivers much closer to the eventual goal of being paid a single rate for all time spent at work. The new contract went into effect March 5.
