Circulator Contract Passes with Key Commitments to Workers!
DC Council passed a $140M, 5-year contract with RAPT Dev for maintenance and operation of the DC Circulator buses. WIN, because of your work in alliance with ATU 1764, a multinational corporation was forced to think about a local workforce’s wages and benefits, and DC Council and DDOT had to face the destructive effects of privatization on DC workers and do something about it.
However, the fight is not over, the implementation of this agreement will require consistent oversight by DC Council, the Circulator workers’ collective bargaining agreement expires next year creating an opportunity to push for benefits matching that of a DC government employee, and we need to hold DDOT and our city to bringing the Circulator in-house.
