Rally to support union carpenters Monday
Posted by on

A rally is scheduled for Monday, May 11 at 11am at the Statehouse in Boston to support MBTA workers--including dozens of union carpenters--who are fighting back against Governor Charlie Baker's attempts to eliminate the Taxpayer Protection Act.

Baker's hand-picked new board at the MBTA is looking to take advantage of the winter failures of private Commuter Rail operators Keolis to privatize the MBTA system. The Taxpayer Protection Act requires that any privatization efforts demonstrate a real benefit, not just elimination of jobs, wages and service levels.
