ATU protests on Mayday against Metro Access cuts

On Mayday, May 1 2015, the Amalgamated Transit Union or ATU showed up in front of Metro’s headquarters. They were demanding an 8 hour workday and cancellation of proposed cuts in Metro Access, Metro’s disability transit system. Mayday celebrates the victory by unions in reducing working days that were once as long as 16 hours to 8 hours a day and originated right here in the US. At this rally, Reverend Hagler cited the success of protesters in Baltimore in forcing the indictment of all 6 cops that killed Freddie Grey as proof that fighting for justice works.
