Last year, NIH shuttle bus driver Russell Hebron got fired for wearing a union button on his uniform. But he and his union, ATU 1764, fought back and won. "When I got fired, my wife was nervous,” Hebron says. “But I didn’t feel bad, because I knew I didn’t do anything wrong." Other activists have been harassed or fired as well. “It’s a revolving door, but we still have our union, and we’re still trying to win,” says Hebron. “We want justice — at NIH and beyond… along with my union family, we’re not stopping until we make it right.” Click here for Hebron’s gripping account.
