ATU Approves Four-Year Contract in Pittsburgh

Members of Amalgamated Transit Union Local 85 have voted to ratify a collective bargaining agreement with the Port Authority of Allegheny County in Pittsburgh. The local represents more than 2,400 light rail and bus operators, mechanics, and clerical workers.
The agreement provides for changes in contract provisions relative to the provision of health care, pensions, and post-retirement healthcare benefits, reducing Port Authority’s legacy obligation costs by approximately $92.8 million over the four-year life of the contract.
“This contract is historic in that it takes unprecedented steps toward reducing Port Authority’s legacy costs, while at the same time maintaining a competitive wage and benefits package for Authority employees,” said Port Authority Chief Executive Officer Steve Bland.
