About Us

Local 788 was founded January 31, 1918, when some transit workers for the United Railways of St. Louis decided to organize for what would be their first strike. That strike, lead to the very first contract to be ratified by the local.

What started as small group of city transit workers, has grown into a booming and vibrant local representing City Mass Transit Bus/Rail Operators, Maintenance Workers, and School Bus Operators across two states and several major metropolitan cities.

We thank all of our members and staff that help make this local the strong.
