Here’s the announcement:
Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) reached a 3-year contract with the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU), representing over 2,300 bus and rail maintenance employees.
“Metro is pleased to announce that it has reached a 3-year agreement with the ATU, which includes a very modest increase in compensation and adjustments to the health and welfare program for union workers,” said Metro General Manager Employee and Labor Relations Richard Hunt.
Metro and ATU reached a tentative agreement last Tuesday. ATU membership ratified the proposed contract Wednesday night and now the contract will be presented to the Metro Board of Directors for its approval at the Thursday, September 27 meeting.

How much more taxes or fare hikes do we have to pay for this?
If your salary and benefits are paid for with PUBLIC DOLLARS, then your “right to strike” should be negated accordingly!
This is very good news. I do have people at times ask me about the possibility of strike disrupting Metro service. This agreement plus the UTU contract reached late last year means I can assure folks we are ok for the next few years. What a relief!
