Sisters & brothers, we’re thrilled to announce that ATU 757’s negotiating team has reached a tentative agreement on a new four-year contract with Rogue Valley Transportation District in Medford!
The TA includes major across-the-board wage increases for all workers; an expansion of funeral leave to 3 days, and to now allow workers to take time off in the event of the death of a sibling; an extension of medical benefits to cover part-time workers; and much, much more. We will make sure that all members in southern Oregon have time to review the TA before voting on it.
We will be hosting an in-person ratification vote for all members of the RVTD bargaining unit on Sunday, March 11th – please stay tuned for more details about the location and time of this session. In the meantime, please reach out to Liaison Officer Steve Bishop or the Union Hall if you have any questions or comments about the tentative agreement or vote!
