AC Transit workers vote to reject contract deal
August 20, 2013, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

Union officials say workers for a San Francisco Bay Area bus system have rejected a tentative contract agreement.

Amalgamated Transit Union Local 192, which represents nearly 1,800 bus operators, mechanics, dispatchers and clerical workers, voted by a 2-to-1 margin Saturday against a proposed contract after reaching a tentative deal with the Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District on Aug. 6.

Union President Yvonne Williams says the members spoke loud and clear as the union voted 576 to 257 against the tentative deal.

The proposed contract would have given workers a 9.5 percent raise over three years as they would also have to contribute more toward their health plans.

Workers would still not have to make any payment toward their pensions.

The negotiating committee says they plan to meet soon to consider its options.

AC Transit has yet to comment.
