The Northern Nevada Central Labor Council once again stands in solidarity with our brothers and sisters at Teamsters Local 533. We need the community's support now more than ever to ensure that our region's bus drivers, mechanics, dispatchers, and supervisors are treated fairly by their employer, Keolis Corporation. Unfortunately, Keolis Corporation’s disregard for the well-being of our regional transit operators and support staff continues unabated. Since they agreed to join Teamsters Local 533 in a participatory process in August, this corporation has only engaged in four negotiation sessions and have been stonewalling the process ever since. By continuing to stall in negotiations, Keolis Corporation not only overburdens the remaining bus operators and the support staff - they also fail the passengers in our community who depend upon our region’s bus system. Our city’s public transit system is the lifeblood of our community. It must operate in the public's interest.
Support our local Teamsters #533 in their reignited strike against RTC Washoe Bus contractor Keolis Transit.

You can show up to picket in solidarity at the following locations until the strike is resolved:
  • 4th Street station (downtown) at 200 E. 4th Street (8AM-8PM Daily)
  • Villanova facility by Wooster High School (8AM-5PM M-F)
Call members of the RTC Board and demand they improve (or end) the Keolis contract and insist on a fair and equitable contract with our current drivers.
