MTA locals are taking strong stands for contracts that include wage increases and reflect inflation, and that provide benefits through health care and family leave. In higher education, locals are rallying to fight a privatization effort that would outsource union jobs. Coverage of this local organizing, including standouts and votes of “no confidence,” is included in the Spring edition of MTA Today. Look inside also for information that prepares members for the 2023 MTA Annual Meeting of Delegates, which includes biographical statements of candidates in several races and information about the two-day business session. This edition also has an update on the Thrive Act and locals organizing around the high-stakes use of MCAS.
