Boston, MA — Today, Boston Carmen’s Union Local 589, which represents over 6,000 MBTA transit professionals, endorsed At-Large City Councilor Annissa Essaibi George for Mayor of Boston. Local 589 leaders praised Essaibi George for her commitment to quality public services, safe and reliable transit, and her ongoing commitment to always give those on the frontlines a seat at the table.


The event, held at Ruggles Station in Roxbury, highlighted the clear choice between Essaibi George and Councilor Michelle Wu. Essaibi Geoge took the opportunity to call Wu out on her empty promise to ‘Free the T’—one of the main tenets of her campaign. 


“Annissa Essaibi George has always fought with and for us, and we’re ready to hit the ground running to get her elected as the next Mayor of Boston,” said Jim Evers, Local 589 President. “We need a Mayor that gets it. We need a Mayor who is a leader and a collaborator, who not only understands the critical role our frontline workers play in our city and the need to bring safe and reliable transit to every Boston resident, but has a path to get there!”


“We need more equitable, accessible, reliable and safe transportation in this city. No doubt about it. But the people of Boston deserve to know the cost and the objectives we need to fulfill to get there,” said Essaibi George. “I am so honored to have the support and the confidence of Local 589, the transit workers who do this work day in and day out.”
