As you may already know IBEW 6 and the City & County of San Francisco and the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency reached impasse at the bargaining table. As a result of reaching impasse we did not have a last, best and final offer to bring to our membership to vote on. We began the Mediation/Arbitration process as required by the charter. Prior to the conclusion of the arbitration the parties reached agreement on certain items. Below is a brief summary of the current status of this round of collective bargaining.
