The drivers of the shuttles to Apple get a new contract
More than 30 drivers of the shuttles every day carrying Apple employees from the parking lot to the headquarters of Cupertino have received a series of benefits and a new contract, after the protests of trade unions against Apple and other Silicon Valley companies.
The new contract provides for a wage increase, but also a series of benefits-related diseases, pension contributions, vacation days and overtime. The drivers work for Loop Transportation, but the contracts are linked directly to agreements with various companies such as Apple, eBay, PayPal, Facebook and Google.
In 2015, the unions representing the drivers have asked for new negotiations and, after months of protests, today comes the good news. One of the cornerstones was the dead time of waiting between a transport and the other: in the previous contract, this time was not paid, while it is now considered “hours of work”.
