The Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local 689, WMATA and you
WASHINGTON (ABC 7) —
The Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local 689, represents more than 10,000 WMATA employees. From the train operators who must deliver the not so great out of service messages to the workers who are up at 3:00 a.m. fixing whatever may need repair in time for the morning commute. Union Metro workers like many metro riders, are fed up and at their breaking point at the current state of public transportation in DC, making it worse is that they believe they have a workable solution but no one is listening! President and Business Agent of ATU Local 689, Jackie Jeter sat down with GMW to break down their solution and more.
