Performance Review Needed
"Tranzit Wairarapa bus drivers who belong to the Manufacturing & Construction Workers Union have unanimously rejected a proposed collective employment agreement with the company...
.."Tranzit pay extremely low wages - most drivers are paid a flat rate of $14-$15 an hour. Fulltime drivers must be available seven days a week, yet they are only guaranteed 30 hours work a week and have no guaranteed rostered days off."..."
That looks like a shit deal to me.
So why bother with the union that got you that shit deal?
I'm sure the drivers could negotiate shit pay and conditions for themselves...
