Bathrooms, Not Benefits, Biggest Issue For Metro Drivers

Nov 17, 2014

Posey Gruener interviews Metro bus drivers at Northgate Transit Center, who describe why they're having trouble catching a bathroom break.

And Marcie Sillman speaks with Paul Bachtel, president of the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 587, which represents transit operators. Bachtel said access to bathrooms is "probably the most significant issue [for the union right now]. It's much greater than wages, or benefits. It's a working issues condition and it's the number one cry of unfairness from our transit operators at this point in time."
