Nelson Zapata: Transportation Employee of the Month


The General Committee of Adjustment 875 and Local 1607 would like to congratulate Nelson Zapata from Division 10 for being named LACMTA's Transportation Employee of the Month.  He was honored today at Metro's System Safety, Security and Operations Committee Meeting held in the Metro Board Room at One Gateway Plaza.

Nelson Zapata is a 14 year bus operations veteran for LA Metro.  He serves on the Accident Reduction Tactics and Strategy Team, as well as a Line Captain and Line Instructor at Division 10.  On top of the additional duties he takes on, Nelson has represented his fellow bus operators at every Bus Rodeo since being hired. On one such occasion, he came 5 points short of a perfect score during a preliminary event.

"I am so proud of the work he is doing," said Local 1607 Chairman Gilbert Camacho who was on hand to help recognize Nelson. "He is a good operator, a good person and he is very deserving of this honor."
