“We're coming to work every day to keep the system moving, keep WMATA moving,” says Lanelle Price, a 25-year bus operator for WMATA and a member of Teamsters local 922. “We're wearing our masks, taking precautions, keeping our hands sanitized. We have chains on the bus that divide us from the public, and the public is wearing masks as well so that's a very good step, and I hope it keeps going until this is over with. Having Teamsters to back us up to make sure that we still have our jobs is a wonderful thing. Everyone needs a union, so fight for whatever situation you need to go through. I appreciate each and every one of you and just stay safe. That's all we can do at this point.” Price is on the latest Teamster Nation podcast, available wherever you get your podcasts on the Labor Radio/Podcast Network.
