Pierce Transit and ATU Local #758 Announce Tentative Labor Agreement

August 19th, 2012

LAKEWOOD, WA – Pierce Transit and Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local #758 have come to a tentative agreement that has no wage increases and redesigns medical and dental benefit plans over a three-year labor contract.



"I am very grateful ATU Local #758 leadership came back to the bargaining table," said Lynne Griffith, Pierce Transit CEO. "As everyone continues to navigate through difficult economic conditions, it's important for the public to recognize that we understand their expectations for keeping down costs and maintaining the best service possible. This tentative agreement reflects what we've heard from the community and our Board of Commissioners."



"Whether driving a bus, answering customer service calls, working in maintenance, or any of the many other critical jobs at Pierce Transit, our ATU members are highly skilled professionals, proud of their public service," said Don McKnight, ATU Local #758 President. "This agreement is about saving jobs, not just the jobs of Pierce Transit employees, but the tens of thousands who rely on the vital service that our members provide every day."



A vote to ratify the tentative agreement by ATU Local #758 membership will take place soon. ATU Local #758 represents 708 Pierce Transit employees.

Trip Planner Tips - Entering Locations

To create a trip plan you need to enter both a starting location (origin) and an ending location (destination). For information about stops, schedules, or service at a specific location, you only need to enter one location.

The Trip Planner recognizes most street intersections and addresses as well as many landmarks in Pierce, King, and Snohomish Counties. If what you entered is not immediately recognized, the Trip Planner will offer you a list of options. You can choose one of the options, but if your intended location is not there, select the "Revise Original Entries" link to return to the entry page and change the entries you have already made.

Addresses

  • You don't need to type in the city along with the address. The Trip Planner shows the possible city names as options if needed. City names are based on zip codes.
  • You don't need to type in St., Street, Ave., or Avenue, or similar street types. The Trip Planner shows the possible alternatives as options if needed. (Example: type 110 Jones instead of 110 Jones Boulevard.)
  • You don't need to type in the directional designations for streets, but if a direction name is part of a street name, you should include it. (Example: type 1000 Main instead of 1000 S Main. But type 1000 West Viewmont for 1000 West Viewmont Way W.)
  • Some streets and addresses are unknown to the Trip Planner. You may need to enter another nearby location, such as an intersection or a landmark.
  • You should not enter the suite number or apartment number.  Just the house number and street name (Example: type in 401 Broadway instead of 401 Broadway Avenue Suite 800).

Intersections

  • The "&" symbol is the only character used between two street names to show an intersection. (Examples: 1st & B, James & Madison)
  • You don't need to type in the city. The Trip Planner shows the possible city names as options if needed. City names are based on zip codes.
  • You don't need to type in St., Street, Ave., or Avenue, or similar street types. The Trip Planner shows the possible alternatives as options if needed. (Example: type Conifer & Jones instead of Conifer Circle & Jones Boulevard.)
  • You don't need to type in the directional designations for streets, but if a direction name is part of a street name, you should include it. (Example: type 3rd & Main instead of 3rd S & S Main. But type 34th & West Viewmont for 34th W & West Viewmont Way W.)
  • Some streets are unknown to the Trip Planner. You may need to enter another nearby intersection or a landmark.
