Thursday, November 21 - 6pm to 8pm
Boston City Hall, 5th Floor
Illegal activity, corruption, violations of agreement, breach of contract, environmental degradation, supporting segregation and oppression – these things are nothing new for Veolia, and on Thursday, they’ll get a first public hearing when the Boston City Council opens its investigation of the company’s breach of contract when it locked out hundreds of school bus drivers on Oct. 8, 2013.
Who ordered the illegal lockout on Oct. 8th? Who is responsible for the corporation’s decision to tear up the union contract and frame-up our leaders?
In the words of City Councilor Charles Yancey’s hearing order, being heard by City Councilor Felix G. Arroyo’s Committee on Labor, Youth Affairs and Health:
“ORDERED: That the appropriate committee of the Boston City Council holds a public hearing to investigate the actions of Veolia Transportation, Boston Public Schools, and Mayor Thomas Menino in the illegal lockout of the school bus drivers as well as allegations included in the Unfair Labor Practice charges now being heard before the National Labor Relations Board to determine if Veolia Transportation is in breach of its vendor contract with the City of Boston.”
