Members of Unite Here Local 25 who work at DC-area hotels and restaurants were among those testifying at last Friday’s Metro hearing in support of late-night service. “Our members come in early and get off late,” said Local 25 President John Boardman. “Without full Metro hours we can’t get to work or get home.” Outside WMATA headquarters, local activists -- including riders and union members -- turned out to show support for keeping metro open late. Another hearing will be held this Thursday at 1p.
