Contract ratification on the new tentative agreement is tomorrow. Voting will be conducted in the divisions from 4am – 3pm. Tellers will be in the divisions with ballots and copies of the tentative agreement for members to review. After the closing of the polls, the ballots will be counted at the SMART Transportation Division offices at 15999 Cypress Ave, Irwindale CA 91706. The count and results will be monitored and certified by the California State Mediation and Conciliation Service (SMCS). They are the same organization that performed and certified the last vote. You can find more information about the SMCS on the State of California’s website:
The General Committee would like all LACMTA Operators to vote yes on this contract. The General Committee believes that this is the best opportunity to once and for all eliminate the Two Tier System and to fix the work rules that have caused so much stress and heartache for the operators.
