Local 542 Members Win Battle for Higher Wages, Better Benefits

The decision to strike is never easy. The picket line brings stress not just to the strikers, but to their families, their communities and everyone who depends on their labor.

For hundreds of Local 542 members who provide paratransit services for MTS Access in San Diego, walking off the job came with the added difficulty of leaving thousands of passengers who rely on their service. But it was a necessary inconvenience to keep the paratransit system running properly, according to Local 542 member Lisette Iribe, a reservationist at MTS who took to the strike line.
