N.Y. private bus workers strike

Posted on January 10, 2005

Workers for two private bus lines walked off the job Monday, stranding thousands of commuters in Queens and Brooklyn.

Heads of Amalgamated Transit Union Locals 1179 and 1181 said 850 workers with Command Bus Company and Green Bus Lines are striking because officials refuse to acknowledge concerns over plans to fold the city-subsidized lines into the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), according to the New York Daily News.

Workers are demanding retroactive pay raises, improved health care and benefits similar to those of MTA employees.

Green Bus Lines serves 120,000 daily commuters in Queens. Command operates mostly in Brooklyn with a daily ridership of 7,000.
