• MST will receive certification for operating funds: Grant OK’d

    Reductions in work force no longer needed

    Monterey-Salinas Transit (MST) has received notice that the US Department of Labor has found the Amalgamated Transit Union objection to MST’s grant for operating funds to be insufficient and has proceeded to issue its certification. This means that MST will be able to receive its reimbursement for $4.5M of eligible operating expenses.   As a result MST will not have to implement the Emergency Service Reduction Plan and will not have to consider any reductions in force at this time.

    MST General Manager and CEO Carl Sedoryk said “I appreciate the exceptional efforts made by MST staff, ATU and their representatives, members of the Department of Labor, as well as Congressman Sam Farr who helped play a part in bringing this difficult matter to a successful resolution.”
