Sun Tran Bargaining Unit Employees Vote on a Strike, Negotiations Continue

From the Department of Transportation:

The Sun Tran management company, Professional Transit Management/Transdev and Teamsters Loval 104 are continuing to meet and negotiate the labor contract which expires on July 31 at 11:59 pm. Andy Marshall, Secretary-Treasurer of Local 104 scheduled a strike vote for Saturday July 25.

Sun Tran bargaining unit employees did give authorization for a strike. The strike vote provides the union negotiating committee with the authority to call a strike if they deem necessary. The vote will not necessarily result in a strike and is not uncommon during these negotiations.

Staff continues to be hopeful an agreement can be reached prior to the the expiration of the contract.
