SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) spends $25 million annually on Muni operator overtime, but a new audit by the City’s Controller says as much as 40% of that overtime isn’t documented or verified.
Part of the problem, according to the audit, is with Muni’s payroll system, though management is being assigned a portion of the blame, too. Specifically, supervisors are said to be lax about verifying employee overtime when timesheets are submitted. A review of payroll documents also found that five operators were given birthday premium pay twice in a single year.READ MORE: Fmr.
