CWA Participates in White House Clean Bus Manufacturing Roundtable

Clean Bus Manufacturing Roundtable

CWA District 7 Vice President Susie McAllister joined leaders of transit agencies and bus manufacturers to plot a path forward for American manufacturing of green transportation at White House roundtable.

CWA District 7 Vice President Susie McAllister made the case that clean jobs must be union jobs in a White House Roundtable on Clean Bus Manufacturing last week.

President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law invests more than $11 billion to support purchasing American-made, low- or no-emission buses. The funding supports good union jobs for CWA members manufacturing clean buses at New Flyer facilities in Crookston, Minn.; St. Cloud, Minn.; and Jamestown, N.Y. New Flyer was awarded over $200 million in competitive grant awards in 2023 and was represented at the roundtable by CEO Paul Soubry.

The roundtable brought together U.S. transit agencies, bus manufacturers, labor unions, and other stakeholders to focus on ensuring U.S. capacity to manufacture clean transit buses at the scale and pace needed to meet market demand and achieve national climate and equity goals.
