TriMet’s Labor Contract
Details about the contract negotiations will be published here so the public can track our progress and stay up-to-date with the issues involved.
TriMet and the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local 757 have reached a tentative agreement on a new three-year labor contract regarding the wages, hours and working conditions for our 2,640 union employees. It comes after a year and a half of discussions, negotiations and mediation sessions between TriMet and ATU Local 757 negotiating teams, and 12 days before an arbitration hearing.
ATU Local 757 leadership will work with represented employees on ratification of the contract and the TriMet Board of Directors will vote on a resolution to authorize the contract agreement at its April Board meeting on Wednesday, Apr. 28. If approved, the new Working and Wage Agreement will cover a three-year period, from December 2019 through November 2022.
