Muni director not pleased with vote against contract 

Muni’s executive director is not pleased with the union’s decision to vote down a labor contract.

Friday, operators of the San Francisco transit agency rejected a proposed labor concessions package that would have restored service and cut Muni spending by allowing part-time drivers and extended existing contracts for another year.

A majority of the Members of Transport Workers Local 250-A union, which represents about 2,000 Muni operators, voted against adopting the concessions.

Nathaniel Ford, Muni’s executive director, in a released statement expressed his disappointment in the union’s rejection stating the concessions were “reasonable” and could have put The City on a “sound financial foundation” as well as restored many of the May 8 service cuts.

“I join with Mayor Newsom and all responsible people in challenging the members of TWU 250A to quickly reconsider their actions and to recast their votes,” Ford stated. “By doing so, they will join the ranks of their union brothers and sisters across City government who have selflessly acted to preserve jobs and to ensure the delivery of vital services to the people of San Francisco.”
