Amalgamated Transit Union Division 308
A union official on Thursday showed reporters a photograph of a Ventra card that worked –- despite having a negative balance of $272.50.
Amalgamated Transit Union Division 308 President Robert Kelly said the employees he represents are getting verbal abuse daily.
The CTA won’t increase fares or cut service in the coming year — if its unions agree to $160 million or more in work rule changes.
Chicago Transit Authority President Forrest Claypool is still hinting at a possible fare increase, after announcing the elimination of 200 non-union positions in an effort to partially fill a big budget hole.
