AB 98 and IWC Wage order No.9 for public transit drivers
I work for a public transit district and our charter is under a public utility. Our union recently ratified a contract that basically signs away our right to breaks and meal periods. Is this legal? Are we not entitled to compensation when meal periods are missed? If this is not legal what recourse do we have? Our union business agent did not explain any of this to us and we were forced to vote on a contract without first being able to read it. Does this constitute ''failure to represent''? If so, I need to find someone that can handle this type of case. This situation is in North San Diego County.
