Good Morning 589 Members:
We wanted to provide you with an update to the Contract Arbitration/Court Case.
We had a meeting this morning with General Manager Scott, General Counsel Scott Reed, the Director of Labor Relations Kim Poirier, the COO Sean McCarthy, and Deputy Secretary Perez.
As a result of that meeting, we have been given assurances that the MBTA’s court appeal of our Arbitration Award is being WITHDRAWN. Also, that the WAGE INCREASES will be in the next available payroll week and that the RETRO PAYMENTS will be issued the 1st payroll week in April of this year.
We want to thank you, the members, for your patience throughout all this. We appreciate your comments and your opinions on this matter as well as your continued support and commitment to this Executive Board.
Boston Carmen’s Union, Local 589
