Al Turner – Shuttle Bus Driver – UPMC

My name is Al Turner. I drove a shuttle bus at UPMC for two and a half years, making sure that everyone in the hospital got to work safely and on time. I loved my job, but UPMC fired me for coming together with my coworkers to form a union so we could improve jobs in our city.
I’ve lived in Pittsburgh my whole life, and over the past decade I’ve seen a lot of changes.  A lot of them are good. But our new eds and meds economy hasn’t created the good jobs that working people need to support their families.
 That’s why I started fighting for $15 an hour and a union at UPMC.
