This is an official communication from ATU Local 732 President Curtis Howard regarding the 1% bonus due to ATU members as a result of our recent contract ratification. Please feel free to share with fellow members!
After eight years without a wage increase and a year and a half without a contract, a majority of MARTA employees represented by Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local 732 voted on Saturday to ratify a new contract. “This is a great day for all working people in Atlanta,” said ATU Local 732 President Curtis Howard. “This shows what can happen when we pull together to come up with a solution that puts the needs of our community first.”
Big news: This Saturday, November 15, we will have two meetings to discuss the contract and vote on ratification!
Responding to an alternative plan proposed by a coalition of transit workers, riders with disabilities, and transit advocates to better manage its Mobility paratransit services, the MARTA Board of Commissioners voted today to table their decision to privatize the federally mandated service.
A coalition of transit workers, Georgians with disabilities, and transit advocates demanded that MARTA give due consideration to workable alternatives to outsourcing Paratransit services. The Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local 732 offered their MARTA Mobility proposal as a means to achieving most of the agency’s cost and efficiency service goals.
On Thursday, MARTA’s Board of Commissioners will hold its next meeting. They are expected to vote on outsourcing our work, starting with Mobility.
We need YOU to pack the board room and rally outside to show support for keeping MARTA public.

REPORT FROM PRESIDENT CURTIS HOWARD ON ATU LOCAL 732’S CAMPAIGN FOR ECONOMIC JUSTICE
Tomorrow, October 25, is an important day for the future of our members and the Atlanta metro area.
October 23rd was a big day for us. More than 150 of you turned out to demand justice, respect, and equality for your fellow MARTA workers and all working Georgians. We were joined by locked-out ASO musicians, fast food workers, clergy, and more. See photos here and news coverage below:
Did you know that MARTA CEO Keith Parker makes $345,000 per year, more than most public transit CEOs in the country? Meanwhile, we and our ATU brothers and sisters are struggling to keep up with the bills. This morning, we let all of Atlanta know the truth with a full page ad in the Atlanta Journal Constitution. You can see it here: http://www.atu.org/atu-pdfs/STRAT_MARTA_Ad2.pdf or by clicking here.
This is what it's all about: equality and respect, two things that Keith Parker, Robbie Ashe, and the politicians who prop them up don't seem interested in when it comes to MARTA workers. That is why we need every member to volunteer and take a stand.
Today we're demonstrating outside of a fundraiser for Jason Carter, who refuses to give us his support. Please meet at 119 Center Street in Avondale Estates at 5:00 p.m.Read more >>>
