Monterey Park City Council Violates CA State Laws

Spirit Bus Drivers / Teamsters Local 848
Cities like Monterey Park are required by law to issue a “Request for Proposals” before they award contracts like the Monterey Park Spirit bus contract. California law protects the hardworking men and women who provide that service by requiring that all bidders declare whether or not they intend to keep the current workers for at least 90 days.
