ATU 282 has reached a tentative agreement with RTS on the Reimagine Project and Collective Bargaining Agreement(Contract). Special Informational meetings will be held at the Union Hall this Friday,  August 16th at 10:00, 3:30 & 7:00. 

We were able to keep keep the on demand transportation positions within our membership instead outsourcing to Lyft & Uber. Extend the annual wage increase of 2.5% to December 31, 2022 and increase Pension monthly cap by $8.00.

This month marks the 55th anniversary of federal support for public transportation.

The success of public transportation can be traced back to one of the late President Lyndon Johnson's greatest accomplishments which continues benefiting many Americans today.  On July 9, 1964, he signed the "Urban Mass Transportation Act of 1964" into law.  This has resulted in the investment over time of several hundred billion dollars into public transportation.

Issues resounding call to arms to ATU members

With the untimely and tragic passing of ATU International President Larry Hanley, the ATU General Executive Board has chosen International Vice President John A. Costa to serve as ATU International President until the next ATU Convention set for September 2019.  

Late last month, a Boston-area man was arrested for allegedly boarding an M.B.T.A. bus and assaulting the driver. According to the Boston Globe's MetroDesk blog, police reports say the suspect got on the bus and confronted the driver about pulling away from a previous stop without letting him board. Witnesses saw the suspect punch the driver until he hit the ground, then kick him while he was down.
