ATU – Transit Union Workers Comp Lawyer
At the Law Office of James M. Hoffmann we represent injured employees who belong to the Amalgamated Transit Union.
The Amalgamated Transit Union is the largest labor union in the U.S. and Canada that represents transit and allied workers. In the state of Missouri there are 3 unions for the Amalgamated Transit Union: the Local 1498, Local 1287 and Local 788.
Transit workers consist of bus drivers, subway and light rail operators, baggage handlers and maintenance workers in urban transit. There are more than 190,000 members in the ATU in 46 states and 9 provinces.
Transit Workers Injuries
Although the majority of public transportation is safe, transportation workers are still at risk of being injured on the job. When a member of the ATU is injured, they are eligible for workers compensation benefits.
Because transit workers work in a variety of situations there are a number of work related injuries possible. Some of the more common injuries have to do with traffic accidents, slip and fall injuries, carpal tunnel and back injuries.
