    MetroAccess union goes on strike

    August 2, 2022 // A MetroAccess union strike on top of problems on the Red Line may complicate commutes in the D.C. region. Members at Amalgamated Transit Union Local 689 that were employed by Transdev voted roughly four weeks ago to begin a strike at the Hubbard Road Garage. That particular location, the union said, has been over 100 workers short “for over a year and a half.” Brian Wivell, a spokesperson for Local 689, said that a mix of road supervisors, mechanics and other workers are expected to strike Monday morning with some expected impacts.
