Denver SuperShuttle Drivers

A 5 Year Fight for Respect on the Job

The SuperShuttle drivers in Denver have come from all over the world to find opportunity in a country that promised with hard work everyone can make a living and provide for their family. 

After a 5 year vicious anti-union campaign, SuperShuttle and its multi-national parent corporation Transdev have unilaterally ended bargaining with these drivers and implemented a contract that will cut worker pay by 30%. This will push many drivers below the poverty line. The drivers organized for respect and a voice in their workplace and the company responded with wage cuts that make it hard for these drivers to survive.
