President's address to members about negotiations

August 26, 2016
To All:
On August 25th 2016, The union and the Authority had contract negotiations for nearly three hours. As a result, the proposal the authority gave to the union was to freeze your PENSION effective immediately, and a small increase in pay. The union will continue to fight for everything that we were promised and will keep you informed on the latest and there is still a possibility that talks will continue. I would like to thank ALL the members for showing their support and unity during these tough times and ask that we continue to do our jobs in a professional manner like we always do. As President of this local and a fellow Bus Operator we will all stand united till the very end.
Thank You

Ismael Rivera
