Joint Statement Between MCTS and ATU
Progress has been made toward a four-year agreement.
MCTS presented a comprehensive proposal which the union will be reviewing and considering. The parties will resume negotiations with the assistance of the Federal Mediator on Monday, August 10, 2015 in an effort to reach an agreement.
Out of respect for the ongoing talks, both MCTS and ATU have agreed they will not publicly discuss this matter or details until after the next meeting.

Every bus in the MCTS fleet will have a seat reserved in honor of Rosa Parks.
Passengers should expect service delays, especially through the city of Milwaukee.
“I was treated with the utmost respect, and really enjoyed riding the city bus,” said national travel writer John Morris.
The Transit Center property was sold by Milwaukee County to developer Rick Barrett who is redeveloping the land into The Couture project.
The sale and demolition of the Downtown Transit Center means changes for several MCTS routes that run through Downtown Milwaukee.
