Loudoun County Transit and Commuter Service workers, on strike since Jan. 11, vowed on Tuesday to keep picketing until their demands for better benefits and higher wages are met.

“One day longer! One day stronger!” about 50 members of Amalgamated Transit Union Local 689 chanted outside the county transit depot in Leesburg. “Who moves Loudoun County? We move Loudoun County!”

And so ends the Loudoun Board of Supervisors pledge to govern through an equity lens. I'll bet that Loudoun staff, who actually run the place, told Phyllis she shouldn't intervene, and she took them at their word instead of actually doing the work to find out, because, as she constantly says, "we have the best staff in the world!"

Sounds like excellent pay and benefits to me!
