EMPLOYEE PROTECTION: PARATRANSIT AND ITS IMPACT ON THE OPERATOR WITH DISCUSSION

The extension of service to various outlying areas is discussed, and a recent trend toward the use of transportation in social servics whereby social service agencies take the responsibility of using transit as a method of developing skills is noted. In this situation, there is a competitive organization that is not recognized because it is under the guise of social service. The problem of the driver who works during the peak hour, thereby obtaining union benefits, and also works regular hours at another job is discussed, as well as the problem of the full time union people who moonlight for private operators for less money than they receive as union drivers. Some points that were raised during discussions of paratransit and section 13c are also include here.
