“Gold Coast Transit District bus drivers understand the union difference. In 2022, we used our union power to win bonuses of up to $2,500 for our service during the pandemic, plus a scheduled 3% salary increase on July 1st that we negotiated under our current contract.
Over time, we’ve gained more fairness on the job, too — including a driver-elected representative on the Accident Review Board (ARB), which reviews incidents on the job, and an appeal process for ARB decisions about such incidents.
Without union membership, none of this would be possible. That’s why you should vote YES to join SEIU Local 721 on March 23 — so you can get what you deserve, too!”
Doug Overton, Gold Coast Transit Bus Driver and SEIU Local 721 Member
