Drivers, mechanics and dispatchers for RTC RIDE and their employer, MV Transportation, have reached a tentative collective bargaining agreement. This ensures there will be no disruptions in service for RTC transit services.
RTC was not a party to the negotiations, which have been assisted by a federal mediator. The next step is for union members to ratify the agreement.
The previous agreement between Teamsters Local 533 and MV Transportation ended June 30th. Negotiations have continued since that time. A previous offer from MV Transportation was voted on by union membership, but failed to be approved.
“RTC is pleased a tentative agreement has been reached and looks forward to the union vote on the offer,” RTC Executive Director Lee Gibson said.
