Big Win For Local 726 Paratransit Workers


IUJAT Local 726 would like to welcome Road Supervisors, Service Controllers, and Schedulers at First Transit Paratransit of Bergen County New Jersey. The workers wanted a change for the better and on August 16, 2019, overwhelmingly voted in IUJAT in an NLRB supervised election.


The union is expanding its reach to help all classifications of employees working in the Paratransit Industry. These members provide an essential service in transporting residents of New Jersey who depend on our members to get them around the state safely, effectively, and on time!

IUJAT and Business Agent Guy James would like to congratulate the workers at First Transit Paratransit on their impressive win and give a special thanks to Organizing Committee Chairperson Drew Webster for his help in making it happen.
