She was also an outspoken advocate for her colleagues’ safety on the road.

The Amalgamated Transit Union is committed to women’s equity and inclusion. That means fighting for our members in the workplace, in contract negotiations, in our own campaigns, and in the halls of government.
It takes all of us as union members to address gender-based discrimination and uphold the voice and dignity of the women in our union and our workplaces.
We are asking all active ATU members in the U.S.

We want to welcome our new Executive Board Members for CT, Robert Gaines and Mark Myers who were appointed by President Custer, with support by the Executive Board.  We additionally want to thank the other ATU members, also very qualified candidates,  who wished to be considered for this position.  We appreciate you all for stepping forward!
