Questions for discussion:
• Why is this a historic agreement?
• What does the new agreement include?
• What reasons does TappCar give for signing this agreement?
• Consult your text: what challenges do unions face in attempting to organize workers in the “new economy”?
• Can you think of other such companies that have been organized or that unions have attempted to organize?
