This press release regarding the ATU 757 – TriMet contract was sent out today by the Local to all our local media contacts:
We have received TriMet’s request to extend the contract for two years. Any action on this offer will have to be presented to the membership for approval.
The Union can not take a position on TriMet’s offer until it has been thoroughly reviewed and presented to our membership. We have a number of concerns about the current contract, and need the opportunity to engage our members on possible changes or solutions before we can accept or reject TriMet’s offer. This is something which will be conducted by mail and we appreciate TriMet’s offer to cover the costs.
