Legacy Qwest Retiree Health Care (R-07)

We have been informed by CenturyLink that under the terms of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) any company that employs 50 or more people is required to provide "affordable" healthcare. The law also requires that Company’s using contractors that employ 50 or more require the contractor to provide healthcare, otherwise the company utilizing the contractor could become liable to do so. We understand that CenturyLink took steps last year to renegotiate all contracts with their U.S.  Vendors and Contractors to require them to provide affordable health care to their employees who perform work for CenturyLink business.  They did not renew their contracts with and will not use contractors who will not provide ACA-complaint health care to their employees.

Denver SuperShuttle Drivers

A 5 Year Fight for Respect on the Job

The SuperShuttle drivers in Denver have come from all over the world to find opportunity in a country that promised with hard work everyone can make a living and provide for their family. 

After a 5 year vicious anti-union campaign, SuperShuttle and its multi-national parent corporation Transdev have unilaterally ended bargaining with these drivers and implemented a contract that will cut worker pay by 30%. This will push many drivers below the poverty line. The drivers organized for respect and a voice in their workplace and the company responded with wage cuts that make it hard for these drivers to survive. Read more on the District news web page.
