Re: Bring Back the (QM22 bus); Astoria Pol Says

Why is the TWU so adamantly opposed to part-timers? As long as it wouldn't affect anyone who is currently employed I don't see the issue.

In Boston the Carmen's Union fought against part-timers and lost. Now part-time bus operator or train attendant is the entry level job. You have to put in a few years as a part-timer before you can move up to full-time.

Part-timers are members of the union so the union still gets its dues.
