An Update from President Curtis Howard on ATU 732's Fight for Economic Justice


Over the past several weeks, you have stepped up and made this fight about so much more than a contract. You are fighting for the same thing that our mothers and fathers fought for in the 1950s, 60s, and 70s: every person’s right to dignity and respect.

When greedy politicians and bureaucrats like Robbie Ashe try to push working Atlantans into poverty, we shall not be moved. When transit bosses like Keith Parker try to use our city as a springboard to a better job somewhere else, we shall not be moved. We move this city, but we shall not be moved! Instead, we will unite, organize, and take action in the name of justice and equality for all.

If we stay strong and stay united, we can save our city and send Keith Parker and his cronies packing!
