Collective Bargaining News


UTLO brothers and sisters!


We are happy to announce the commencement of our second round of Collective Bargaining Negotiations!

On March 25, 2020 we will state UTLO demands and will make sure that your concerns heard.

As we discussed during our General Membership meeting, our ultimate goal is to match and exceed what people we supervise have.

Being newly established Union, we have to consider major issues which MUST be resolved:



  • Compensation of time and a half for work over 8 hours
  • Pay Parity among the same titles
  • General wage increase retroactive to the expiration of our first contract July 1st, 2019
  • Compression rate increase  
  • Pick rights based on seniority in title
  • Medical benefits contribution decrease
  • Arbitration rights for disciplinary suspensions
  • Modifications to transfer procedure
  • Productivity Incentive Program for UTLO Members
  • Night Differential
  • MTA Bus Pension
  • 100% of Sick balances cash out at retirement
  • Commuter pass (LIR, Metro North, SI Express Buses)



Between now and March 25th myself and UTLO Executive Board will be setting up field meetings to discuss above demands.


Mario Bucceri, President
