MCTS union workers rally for new contract

NOW: MCTS union workers rally for new contract


MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Union workers for the Milwaukee County Transit System have a message for management. 

They rallied outside the MCTS headquarters demanding a new contract.

Employees say they've been working for 18 months without a contract and want higher pay, better benefits and more security for bus drivers. 

"We're not asking for a lot," said Union Steward Michael Brown. "As a matter of fact, we are part of Milwaukee County, why can't we have the Sheriff on the bus, they are part of Milwaukee County."

16 MCTS bus routes were expected to be cut next year due to a budget shortfall, but on Thursday, County Executive Chris Abele announced that new funds became available, and ten routes were saved for another year.
