MCTS and ATU Continue Productive Negotiations
Both sides have explored options suggested by the Federal Mediator.
MILWAUKEE – The Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) and the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 998 (ATU) continued productive contract talks today. Both sides have explored options suggested by the Federal Mediator, who has been working alongside negotiators since the spring.
ATU leaders have requested that MCTS provide a formal proposal that the Union can take to its members for a vote later this month. MCTS will prepare and present a formal proposal for the next meeting, which is scheduled for Friday, September 25, 2015.

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.
