The TWU and MTA will also work together to set goals and coordinate interests to increase productivity and to move towards these improvements, sharing all the savings achieved in the same way. The agreement allows for the first time an exchange of positions between employees of similar professional classes among all TWU members, which provides employees with greater flexibility in the schedule, while ensuring adequate coverage of critical corporate tasks and minimizing overtime. The agreement allows third-party contractors to allow a unique in-depth clean-up of 180 metro stations. The contract also allows workers to voluntarily exchange jobs; Workers who exchange positions receive hourly allowances, which saves money, as the MTA is not required to cover overtime. The MTA expects this to reduce the annual cost of overtime by $17 million, which is based on an improvement in employee availability of at least one and a half days.16 The union and the MTA will participate in savings of more than one day on availability. The MTA expects average annual availability savings of $459 per TWU employee; However, the savings are based on changes in the behaviour of employees who forego overtime. The estimate also does not take into account employees who use the family family management program. The number of positions that would be required if 1.6% of workers were paid for family leave would offset more than half of the proposed availability savings, or 55,500 days for 37,000 employees.17 Although these agreements do not have a significant negative effect if all savings are realized, the MTA has not used the possibility of allowing “net” wage increases. where productivity would have offset the cost of all increases. If this had been the case, the MTA could have significantly reduced its budget deficits during the year.
It should not miss the opportunity to introduce changes to labour rules in other collective agreements. The agreement provides for the recognition of overtime compensation as an important priority for both the MTA and the TWU, to ensure that eligible workers have the same opportunity to work overtime and effectively allocate overtime. The MTA will also implement existing contractual agreements to achieve this priority. The agreement also contains provisions to continue to modernize the Agency`s disciplinary approach to ensure that the policy is more progressive and gender-fair to staff, which is an important objective in fast-wards. The contract contains provisions to reduce health use and costs and increase staff availability to reduce the cost of overtime. The MTA estimates these savings at US$44 million per year, or US$176 million over four years. These savings may not be realized because they depend on changes in staff behaviour and, for example, changes in the cost of MTA for health insurance premiums. If you plan to obtain incoming material from outside the university, the external organization should provide an MTA so that the university can accept the terms of the agreement. Often, the supplier only supplies the materials when these conditions have been accepted. If you receive an MTA, don`t sign it yourself. It must be approved by the contract team on behalf of the university.
