LANSING, Mich. — CATA workers, riders and allies are preparing to rally at the Lansing City Council meeting Monday night.

The rally is being held to demand Transdev, the private contractor, improve paratransit service, working conditions and wages, according to a press release.

"We want to send a strong message that time's up for CATA's private contract Trandev paratransit riders and workers with the respect and dignity they deserve," Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) International Vice President Anthony Garland said. "Time's up for city council to take action immediately and demand Transdev improve paratransit service and provide their workers a living wage, real health care and better working conditions."

CATA workers have testified before the CATA board meeting, marched on Transdev's Lansing operations and attended previous meetings to raise the concerns they've had with Transdev over the past few weeks, according to the release.
