On This Day in 1965
The Gateway Arch, a 630 ft high parabola of stainless steel marking the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial on the waterfront of St. Louis, Missouri is completed after two and one-half years. Although it was predicted 13 lives would be lost in construction, not a single Ironworker died.

First Transit mobility drivers choose Teamsters
Updated On: Apr 16, 2013

Apr. 16, 2013

One hundred and thirty full-time and part-time para-transit mobility drivers employed at First Transit’s new Sisson Street dispatch facility in Baltimore voted April 15, 2013 to become members of Teamsters Local 355.

Many of the new members were among former Veolia para-transit drivers represented by Local 355 who were laid off in February. Veolia Transportation issued a WARN notice in December 2012, expecting to lay off 80 employees when its contract with the State of Maryland awarded a portion of its business to First Transit. Seventy-eight Local 355 members—all recent hires—were laid off.

In mid-January, Local 355 organizers, with the invaluable assistance of Veolia shop stewards Darren Mason and Paul Carter, attended First Transit’s three-day job fair where more than 200 job seekers signed Teamster representation cards.

First Transit began operating out of the Sisson Street facility March 1, 2013.

A mail ballot election was conducted over a two-week period, with returned ballots counted Monday, April 15, 2013.
