SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – The on-again, off-again talks to end a labor dispute between operators and officials with the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency are once again off.
That has led Ed Reiskin, SFMTA Director of Transportation, to pen a lengthy letter to Transport Workers Union, Local 250-A, including some tough talk and warnings. Reiskin expressed disappointment that the union does not want to continue the arbitration process that began again this week.
Kristen Holland, spokesperson for the Municipal Transportation Agency, said Reiskin wants the two sides back at the table by June 24.
“Now we’re really at a place of just urging the union’s leadership to return to charter mandated mediation and arbitration process,” she said.
