A successor contract with First Transit Baltimore MTA was ratified in June by members. Highlights of the three-year agreement include significant wage increases; gains in paid time off (PTO); the addition of a healthcare HMO option in the second year of the agreement that offers lower deductibles; and retroactivity back to January 2019.
