Letโ€™s not forget in the ๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ•-๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ— ๐œ๐จ๐ง๐ญ๐ซ๐š๐œ๐ญ the union agreed to a committee of 4 day work weeks.

The main goal of this for management was to ๐ข๐ง๐œ๐ซ๐ž๐š๐ฌ๐ž ๐ž๐ฆ๐ฉ๐ฅ๐จ๐ฒ๐ž๐ž ๐š๐ฏ๐š๐ข๐ฅ๐š๐›๐ข๐ฅ๐ข๐ญ๐ฒ and itโ€™s stated plain as day.

Fast forward to the current contract proposal that we have to ๐•๐Ž๐“๐„ ๐๐Ž on, employee availability is on there again.

The language seems vague on how theyโ€™re going to increase employee availability, well itโ€™s not. We must remember that these contracts are an ๐œ๐จ๐ง๐ญ๐ข๐ง๐ฎ๐š๐ญ๐ข๐จ๐ง ๐จ๐Ÿ ๐ž๐š๐œ๐ก ๐จ๐ญ๐ก๐ž๐ซ. So the MTA is going to increase employee availability by introducing ๐Ÿ’ ๐๐š๐ฒ ๐ฐ๐จ๐ซ๐ค ๐ฐ๐ž๐ž๐ค๐ฌ as soon as the contract is ratified.

4 day work weeks will eventually introduce part-time workers to buses. The language actually says that itโ€™s not construed to mean part time operators, but it also doesnโ€™t mean that it wonโ€™t happen.

So with a 4 day work week and ๐š๐ฎ๐ญ๐จ๐ง๐จ๐ฆ๐จ๐ฎ๐ฌ ๐›๐ฎ๐ฌ๐ž๐ฌ in the near future, buses will be doomed. Runs will be cut, OT will he gone and part timers will be on the property.

If you vote yes and you canโ€™t retire within the end of this contract (2023), youโ€™re setting yourself up for failure.

I put all the language here for you to read for your self!

Buses ๐•๐Ž๐“๐„ ๐๐Ž and send the union back to the table for better protection and languageโ€ผ๏ธ
