As a Union we need to stand together to further progress in Mass Transit and we need to be the leaders in our communities to make this progress happen. Its been clear that most members of local government and national government do not have the needs of the people in mind when they pass/reject legislation. The responsibility to make change happen has fallen to the people of this great country. As a Union we have the ability to organize, empower, and fight for what we need to make progress. We need to encourage and unite our riders to get out and vote for what we and they so desperately need. We need congress to hear us loud and clear. WE WANT MASS TRANSIT AND WE WANT IT NOW!!!!
