Earlier this week, SMART General Committee 875 met at the the union offices in Irwindale to discuss the upcoming contract negotiations with the LACMTA. The returns of the employee questionnaire were discussed and plans for additional negotiation training were set.
Transportation Division Vice President Reddy Adhi has been assigned by SMART Union International to assist GO-875 in these contract negotiations. “Mr. Reddy” was formerly the General Chairman for SMART members at Santa Monica’s Big Blue Bus and was instrumental in securing their contract. This addition to the GO-875 negotiating team is a much appreciated and valuable resource.
Finally, the General Committee set a list of dates and times for the special union meetings to discuss the upcoming contract negotiations. All members are welcome to attend any of the meetings being held over the next month and a half.
