The labor union representing Muni operators is in the midst of voting to ratify a contract proposal that could result in $15 million in savings for the transit agency over the next two years.
Details about the contract proposal with the Transport Workers Union Local 250-A are scant, but if approved, the new deal could lessen the impact of the agency’s proposed service cuts and fare increases, according to MTA executive director Nat Ford.
Members of TWU Local 250-A began voting on the contract ratification at 5 a.m. today and the process will continue until 5 p.m., according to the union website. It’s uncertain when a result will be known about the vote.
Calls to union representatives have not been returned.
