Newark, NJ – Gateway shuttle bus drivers in Newark, New Jersey, joined RWDSU/UFCW Local 108 last year to improve their pay and treatment.
Now, the shuttle bus drivers for Prudential Building workers in downtown Newark have won their first union contract, and it includes numerous improvements. The contract provides raises, added vacation time, and more overtime opportunities. It’s a big improvement for workers who had previously gone five years without a wage increase
“The Gateway Company has grown and become very profitable over the years, and workers deserved the improvements they are getting with their first contract,” said RWDSU/UFCW Local 108 President Charles N. Hall, Jr.
