Tentative Transit Agreement Reached

PITTSBURGH – The Port Authority, the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 85 and the county have reached a tentative contract agreement.  If approved, the agreement is the first step in preventing the 35 percent service cuts, resulting layoffs and Collier Division/park and ride closures scheduled to take effect in September.

That agreement will be considered by the Local 85 membership on August 19th and the Port Authority Board, which will meet in the days following the union vote.  Once those votes occur, we will be at liberty to share more details with the public.
