The fall issue of our Fare Times newsletter is now available. The Fare Times provides news and information for Teamster taxicab operators.
In this issue, we have an update on the airport contract that the Port signed with Eastside For Hire this month.
We believe that drivers' income will decrease under the new contract. Although we weren't able to prevent the Port from signing it, we were able to achieve important protections for drivers and their families.
One of the requirements under the contract is that Eastside must sign a "Labor Peace" agreement with the drivers' Union within 60 days.
We will be scheduling demands meetings soon so that drivers can talk about their priorities for the agreement. We'll let you know once those meetings have been scheduled.
