Denver SuperShuttle Drivers
A 5 Year Fight for Respect on the
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. Read more

3. You can also help these drivers by
sending a message to the CEO of Transdev,
SuperShuttle’s multi-national parent company,
demanding fair treatment for their workers: http://cwa-union.org/lssupershuttle.
