On Wednesday, the vote over new Muni contracts between SFMTA and the Transport Working Union Local 250-A, a 2,200-member union, comes after more than four months of negotiation. The new contract states that overtime can only happen after a minimum of forty-hours and freeze in wage if an operator’s license is not valid.
Proposition G, which was passed last fall, gives more power to SFMTA to help control the second highest wage for operators in the nation.
It seems like SFMTA is having a good week!
Yesterday, the Board of Directors unanimously voted to require eastbound drivers on Market to turn right at Tenth and Sixth streets. According to this article, since the trial began in September 2009, transit speeds and pedestrian and bicycle traffic have increased.
