CALIFORNIA TRANSIT WORKS! (CTW) is a statewide consortium of transit agencies, labor unions, and community colleges that promotes high road training partnerships to address critical issues in public transit.
The consortium’s transit agencies and labor unions have over 15 years of experience creating and expanding labor-management partnerships. The consortium draws on the knowledge and skills of frontline workers, promotes ongoing health and wellness strategies for workers in a high-stress industry, and addresses workplace and industry issues related to skill development and technological change.
We educate, advocate, and advise transit agencies and unions in building worker centered training partnerships, as a key strategy in meeting industry demand for qualified workers to provide reliable and effective clean energy transit services for our communities.
1) Utilize processes that draw deeply upon the knowledge and skills of frontline people who are closest to the work.
2) Promote ongoing health and wellness strategies for workers in this high stress industry, as the foundation for professional public transit service.
3) Address key workplace and industry issues through positive, results-oriented, measurable actions that meet the interests and needs of transit partnership stakeholders.
