WASHINGTON METROPOLITAN AREA TRANSIT AUTHORITY

House Committee on the District of Columbia Questions

General Questions:

Question 5.

bmit a description of work rules determining the movement of drivers and maintenance employees between bus and rail.

Supplementary Agreement

By and between The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority and
Local Division 689, Amalgamated Transit Union.

Section 103

(a) System seniority shall be applicable in two basic seniority Districts: Operating and Non-Operating. Each of these Districts shall include both bus and rail systems.

(b) In the Operating District, permanent vacancies and new jobs shall be available system-wide, and shall be awarded to the senior bidder who qualifies or is able to qualify within a reasonable period.

(c) Permanent vacancies in the Non-Operating District shall be advertised first internally. For this purpose, internally requires posting of a job in the appropriate one of the four separate internal systems

[blocks in formation]

If the new job or permanent vacancy is not filled as a result of the internal posting for pick, the job shall be available on a system-wide basis. in each case the job will be awarded to the senior qualified employee in the area in which the posting occurs.

There shall be an annual system pick in the garages associated with the bus equipment section. There shall also be an annual system pick in the satellite rail equipment stations. These annual system picks shall be in addition to the posting of new jobs and permanent vacancies for bid.

Section 204

Initial Train Operator vacancies will be filled by the senior bargaining unit employees (based on Operating Department seniority) who meet the published qualifications of the job, and who have performed their duties in a satisfactory manner as reflected in their on-the-job work records. All employees accepted for a Train Operator position will be expected to spend at least one year in that position. If an individual desires to bid out of the Train Operator position in less than the one-year period such bidding out will only be to a current bona fide vacancy and the individual will be required to wait two years before applying for lateral movement to any other position. This rule may be applied more than once if similar circumstances occur. The number of months spent in the Train Operator position by an employee who bids out in less than one year will be offset against the two-year waiting period.

Except as provided above for employees accepted for a Train Operator position, an employee having moved laterally (to a job at the same or a lower rate of pay) from bus to rail and back to bus, or from rail to bus and back to rail, will thereafter be prohibited from further lateral (to job at the

a lower rat of pay) transfer until he has been on the then-current job for one year.
